Scanning cows reveals embryonic death in a suckler herd
On a farm visit outside Tulla, Co. Clare I scanned a suckler herd. The scan revealed a number of cows with embryonic death between 30 and 35 days pregnant. This group of cows were all first parity cows and had been bought prior to calving last summer. The client had no health screening or vaccination programs in place. I explained the potential costs of his approach. The client eventually agreed to start vaccinating.
