Lambing CCTV – Calving CCTV – Farm CCTV – Farmers get ready for Spring 2020 Lambing time

Farmers are constantly on the go at all hours of the day checking on livestock during calving and lambing. CCTV installed in calving and lambing sheds enables farmers to view their livestock remotely from a live view monitor or via their smart phones and tablets saving them valuable time when they need it.

Often referred to as “Calving Cameras” or “Lambing Cameras” we have vast experience installing CCTV in pens or awkward areas to cover all angles where livestock put themselves. Having CCTV within lambing and calving sheds provides farmers with that quick reassurance while allowing them to carry out with other jobs.

Get ready for the Spring time in 2020 and get in touch !
