Kamar HeatMount Cattle Heat DetectorsKamar Heatmount Detectors are a valuable heat detection aid that assist in identifying cows ready for artificial breeding. The detectors are a pressure sensitive device with a built-in timing mechanism designed to be activated by standing heat behavior.
Glued onto the sacrum (tail head), pressure from the brisket of a mounting animal requires approximately 3 seconds to turn the detector from white to red. This timing mechanism helps distinguish between true standing heat versus false mounting activity. Standing heat behavior in the bovine is the most reliable sign that a cow is ready to be bred.
- Accurate. Simple to Use.
- Detects cows at night.
- Improves profitability of AI.

I will never order these again. Very hard to keep on the cow. Extremely messy. Cows tails get stuck on the detector due to adhesive around the edges.
We use the Kamar patches with our small Dairy herd. We've had really good luck with them staying on. I brush the application area clean of dirt and dust, wipe with a dry cloth and apply. They show when your cow is mounted but doesn't show frequency. Which is kinda important when AI'ing.
"Not worth it"
I bought 25 of these patches for our small dairy herd as we AI 100%. I had not used them before. First, they are messy; the cows tail flick them off the back before they can set. So we tied tails back and glued while milking. So far they have failed to detect all but 1 cow; and yes I used the pattern in the kit. I will never buy these again, a total waste of money but more important two months of heat detection.
I have used kamar patch with the glue an the same with the pell off backs an others but it seems like the patch you have put the glue on is the best for me case i have problems with the peel off backs coming off during the heat cycle.
