Scanning maiden heifers identifies the link between sex semen and identical twins

Visited a client in Co. Limerick who used sex semen to breed his maiden heifers. We scanned 1 of the heifers carrying identical twins whereby 1 of the embryos split in the early stages of development. The Cows DNA USART (Ultrasonographic assessment of the reproductive tract) technique was able to verify that this was the case. In our experience less than 1% of maiden heifers are associated with identical twins.
