Database linkage to USART (Ultrasonographic assessment of the reproductive tract) facilitates accurate scanning of cows
On a farm visit outside Athenry, Co. Galway, a client had a group of heifers in an outside farm. The identification marks using freeze branding were very poor. However, Cows DNA have built technology which enables the linkage of the passport number of the animal with the freeze brand. In this case scenario we were able to accurately scan the cows with proper ageing and sexing.
