Scanning maiden heifers reveals a link with Cryptosporidium
Visited a client in County Cork who presented a group of cows and heifers. Pregnancy rates were 50% in his dairy cows and close to 30% in his maiden heifers. Scanning revealed that the structures of the uterine horns were not normal in a number of the maiden heifers not confirmed pregnant. This condition has been associated with Coccidiosis and Cryptosporidium as a young calf.
