The TAIL PAINTTM Packaging:

  • Currently available in 500ml bottles with Applicator Brush 
  • 4 Colours :  Red, Blue, Green & Yellow 
  • 16 Bottles per colour per box

Directions for use:

  • Make sure tail head area of cow is clean and free of any loose hair.
  • Apply a paint strip, approximately 15cm in length and 3-5cm wide, along the spine in the same direction of the hairgrowth of the tail head. Additional coats may be applied and will aid performance of product.
  • The paint is rubbed off by crumbling and hair will stand on end when standing cows are mounted, a clear indication of Estrus activity.
  • Reapplication is needed to confirm  Estrus activity
  • TAIL PAINTTM will remain on cows that have not cycled - duration subject to conditions and correct application.


  • HEAT DETECTION AID – applied to Dairy Cattle prior Artificial Insemination. The paint is painted on the tail-head (top end of tail) section of the cow in a 15 x 3-5cm strip.  When the cows mount each other (this is a sign that the standing cow is in Heat), the paint will be rubbed off by crumbling and hair will stand on end, thus a sure sign that the cow is on Heat (in Estrus) and ready for Artificial Insemination.

  • Marker during MATING PROGRAMME - can be used for marking cattle during the full Artificial Insemination Season as part of a Mating Programme for very large herds of cattle.  Suggested colour usage for this:

  1. RED – apply approximately 3 weeks after cow has calved.  Rubbed off paint indicates that cow has started to cycle.  Untouched paint, indicates that cow has not cycled.

  2. GREEN – apply just before commencing with AI programme.  Rubbed off paint  indicates that cow is in heat on daily basis.

  3. BLUE – apply indicating AI is successful.

  4. YELLOW – apply once pregnancy confirmed.

  • GENERAL MARKER - can also be used during non-mating season as general marker on cattle, e.g. marking of dates, numbers, medicated cattle, etc
