Why did you decide to become a Piabreed Partner?
“[Piabreed offered] a different way of monitoring births, and I wanted to see the detailed data about the mare and the combination of different data to calculate a probability [of birth].”
“The possibility of a more accurate prediction of the birth date and time.”
“To try something new and possibly more effective, as other systems are not always satisfactory.”
“The project sounded very interesting.”
What is the best thing about monitoring your mares with Piabreed?
“Seeing the detailed data for heart rate, respiration, temperature and movement in one system without disturbing the mare.”
“[It provides a] good overview and we have easy access to the data.”
“The belt is very light.”
What benefits do you see for breeders once Piabreed is ready for the general market?
“Multiple systems can run simultaneously and no transmitter needs to be sewn into the mare. I also like the informative vital sign data.”
“Better time management.”

“Birth prediction without night watch.”
Would you recommend Piabreed and why?
“Yes, it is an alternative to the usual birth monitoring with much more information.”
“If everything works reliably [when the final algorithm is ready and the product goes to market] and births are reported early, then yes.”
“Yes. [After the new data is fed into the algorithm], should the system alerts happen 2 hours before birth, that would be enough time.”
