As you can see during the online Stallion Show, Bauke de Boer has become the Breeder of the Year 2020. On Monday, January 25, he was once again surprised with a visit from the Phryso editors, represented by Body Bosgra and Marijke Akkerman. An extensive interview followed, but Bauke also received the Birth-Watch, a birth alarm for horses, which has been customary since last year.
Birth alarm required
It will turn out that this gift will come in handy. Bauke and his partner Luciel van der Kooi are going to put 7-8 mares under the stallion this year, which is more than double the number of recent years. In recent years, Bauke bred around 2-3 foals per year, but during the conversation with Body and Marijke it turned out that there are still many plans for breeding. Friesian horses are very popular and we must ensure that there is sufficient growth in the coming years, says Bauke.
The Birth Watch
The Birth-Watch birth alarm ensures continuous monitoring of your mare to alert you in good time when the delivery is imminent. With the Birth-Watch birth alarm you have 24/7 digital temperature monitoring of your mare. You always and everywhere have insight into the status of your mare through the birth-watch app. You will be notified well in advance of the upcoming birth by means of a call on your (mobile) telephone.
