Scanning cows reveals ochrus

On a farm visit a client presented 30 heifers which we assessed as not in calf 4 months previously and they were in a pre-pubertal state. We scanned the same heifers today. None of them were in calf and they were in a deep pre-pubertal state. This revealed that the heifers had regressed in terms of reproductive function. Physical assessment of the same heifers revealed that they were close to 100kg, below their target weights. Unfortunately, these heifers had all the signs of hunger.
