Preg-Checking Dairy Cows
Ultrasound – We use ultrasound on the early pregnancies (30 days to 75 days pregnant) because it gives us more information about the calves.
- First pregcheck is done starting at day 32
- Second confirmation pregcheck is done starting at day 60
- At these checks, we can see the heartbeat and healthy placenta. More importantly, we can see when these are missing and tell you that the cow is already aborting so you can get her back into the breeding program.
