Extreme calving difficulty with limousine bull Elite Erasmus.
Visited a Limousine breeder in County Clare. This client informed me that he had used a Limousine bull Elite Erasmus as a sire on a number of crossbred cows. It resulted in extreme calving difficulty. It transpires that his figures for calving difficulty have increased from 70% to 80%. Scanning cows reveals that uterine involution rate decreases as calving difficulty increases.
