Scanning cows reveals embryonic mortality

On farm visits in Co. Cork, we noted a significant increase in embryonic mortality. We are now scanning cows in spring calving systems which are between 20 and 85 days pregnant. Heavy rainfall, poor grass quality and poor grazing conditions have resulted in a significant depression in milk yields associated with stressful conditions.
