Heat Detection Aid
There's no more sloppy gluing with Western Point's new visual heat detection aid, Estrus Alert™, because it has its own adhesive backing for quick application. Even better, the easy-to-apply label is friction activated instead of pressure activated so it requires several good mounts before a clear color signal shows that the animal is in standing estrus. Unlike chalk or paint, once this signal is applied it'll stay on for weeks.
