The Vel'Phone is a robust, effective solution based on analysis of the temperature of the animals in order to carry out remote monitoring of calving.

Ease of use

Once the thermometer has been placed in the vaginal canal, the Vel'Phone informs you via SMS of the day-to-day changes in temperature, of the imminence of calving, and of the breaking of waters.

Peace of mind

Day and night and anywhere, you will remain free and have peace of mind because the Vel'Phone is monitoring your animals. It informs you and your employees right from the start of calving.


Calving prediction via SMS invites you to place the animal under optimal conditions before its waters break. Detection of the breaking of the waters via SMS provides you with the greatest accuracy in order to leave the animal to do the work first, and then intervene at the optimal time. Ultimately, you will improve your stock breeding results with more living calves and fewer post-partum complications.

The vaginal thermometer, which is positioned in the animal 7 days before calving, communicates the temperatures on an ongoing basis to the radio base at a range of over 200m.

The base's straightforward parameterisation enables its service to be adapted to your livestock breeding organisation:

Enter 1 to 3 mobile telephone numbers.

Choose the time and number of daily temperature reports sent (up to 2 daily).

Adjust the delay on sending expulsion messages during the night (from a few minutes to 2 hrs).

The Vel’Phone Kit consists of:

5 to 50 vaginal thermometers.

2 batches of accessories per thermometer.

1 applicator, 2 cleaning nets.

1 carry case.

Use of the Vel'Phone requires the acquisition of a Radio base for collecting the thermometers' data. It functions based on a simple SMS subscription.
