Embryonic mortality reduces overall reproductive performance

On farm visits to dairy farmers outside Ballyferritear, Co. Kerry revealed a high incidence of late embryonic death.

However one farmer expressed his delight by the scanning service, whereby his cows are given extra opportunity to settle back in calf.
