Scanning cows reveals poor reproductive performance in a newly established herd
Scanned a herd of cows in County Cork. Which was based on cows purchased primarily from 1 location, for a new farm. The breeding programme began on the 15th of April, however reproductive performance was extremely poor associated with undetected oestrus, ovarian cysts, and embryonic mortality. In my opinion, stress of re-establishing a new herd resulted in the observed reproductive performance.
