Have to say I don't this using a Doppler has got anything to do with indicating good or bad husbandry. Just different management styles. We don't scan our goats- we "hand mate" them, record the date and go from there. But I certainly don't think people who do get their goats scanned are practicing bad husbandry. It's just different ways of doing things.


Everyone's different, and the world would be very boring if we all thought the same and did the same things.

Ballingball,
 
Hey I love the fact that you're in the Scottish Goatkeepers Federation.
 
A federation sounds so much grander and better than a club.  All us pig keepers just have clubs and associations, which sound boring.
 
Maybe I'll have to start a Pig Federation - anyone any ideas that'll work out we'll in an acronym with a F at the beginning or end?? :)

Well oakbandspigs, maybe you should just start yourself a federation. Of course maybe to us an "association" doesn't sound boring, but each to their own.

possibly not the best descriptive title  but i think it has grabbed the attention though        if some want this high tec piece of kit fine    if they can afford it even better but and it is a big BUT will it put any more money in your pocket   and in these times of austerity when the majority complain when feed goes up 10 a ton  and we are looking for cheaper food sources                 will it save you time doubtfull   other than annoying your eardrums  now if it was a screen version i could see the possibility's  if there was a retained piglet after farrowing     there is just no substitute for stock manship  which itself you are always learning
 
p6te   not a green screen and we have wireless technology   but i think the future generation will be screwed if the screens all go blank at the time
 
tizaala  the picture you portray about kos was the very reason you went      a cheap Holiday
no machine could cultivate that boulder strewn hillside better and cheaper than that old couple
 
 
yes mechanisation has moved on and i feel privileged to have witnessed this transition from labour intensive backbreaking work to everything at the touch of a joystick   16 stone bags of grain was from the days that men were men and boys were meant to work a 16 inch coal seam
 
anyway back to the Doppler in my case it will cost me money that i could not recover and justify and is not needed even if i was willing to be a shareholder in a seven way ownership just my view and opinion :farmer:

I must admit, I wouldn't bother using the equipment as you know fairly quickly if your pig is in pig. I would however use and have used a scanner for my horse when she was (I hoped) in foal, thats different though, gestation period is longer and I just can't wait until it becomes obvious. But with pigs you should have a pretty good idea fairly quickly if your pig is in pig.
