Depending on your draft configuration, the draft list may contain:

  • animals in heat, ready for insemination

  • animals with potential health issues, requiring a health check/treatment

  • or both.

If you have a drafting gate integration or a Tru-Test Dairy Drafter/Sort Gate, the draft list is automatically sent to the auto-drafting gate.

Animals in the draft list because they are in heat

These animals are in heat, at the optimum time for insemination within their oestrus cycle. We recommend insemination at some point during the green insemination window displayed.

Animals in the draft list for health reasons

These animals have possible health issues and we recommend a health check or treatment. Investigate sub-clinical mastitis, lameness etc using your normal methods e.g. strip and test before milking, check feeding, check milk yield, check temperature.
