Pre-breed scanning of cows
A client outside Bandon, Co. Cork presented a dairy herd with a spring calving section for scanning. Freshly calved autumn calving section were mixed in with the herd. They had not planned to scan this group of cows. Scanning revealed serious reproductive problems in the autumn calving section due to multiple ovulations, milk fever, or ketosis. The client was delighted with the education he got from scanning these cows and plans to scan his freshly calved cows at regular intervals in the future.
