Preg Testing

Robyn Harris

Pregnancy testing is one method of monitoring reproductive efficiency and detecting any problems early in the breeding cycle, so that these objectives can be achieved.

 

Early detection of non-pregnant cows is the main benefit from pregnancy testing. Often the size and age of calf can be determined leading to estimation of calving date. It can also be useful in the detection of fertility issues.

 

We can perform preg testing through manual palpation as well as using bovine ultrasound.
