A Dumfries-based dairy researcher is leading a trial designed to help farmers in Africa, by providing them with cow tracking devices.

The specialist tags allow farmers to monitor the cow's movements and give an indication of when they may be in season.

They could be out at the market and from there, they can actually know that my cow is in season. They can then contact the artificial inseminator, who will then go and inseminate the cow at the farm."
