Pregnancy Diagnosis

Pregnancy in Cows in Dorset and New Forest

Knowing which cows and heifers are pregnant and having an idea on calving dates can make management of a suckler unit much simpler. Using our Easiscan ultrasound scanner we are able to  provide information on the pregnancy status of your animals.

The best time to perform these ‘PD’ scans are usually approximately 6-8 weeks after the bulls have been taken out. Scanning at this time gives us the best opportunity to give accurate calving dates, but also offer advice on non-pregnant animals. Picking up barren animals, or managing infertility issues at this early stage helps to improve the productivity of your farm.
