Bovine Pregnancy

Pregnancy drives performance for dairy and beef operations. Improved pregnancy rates mean greater profitability. Two factors greatly influence this performance: the timing of pregnancy detection and overall herd health.

  • Identifying open cows early and accurately after breeding and calving results in shorter calving intervals. In turn, shorter calving intervals mean increased milk production, a more uniform crop of calves, as well as more efficient rebreeding and the early identification and removal of subfertile cows.
  • Overall good health is the best indicator of optimal reproductive performance. Cows that are compromised by diseases such as BVDV and Johne’s have lower pregnancy rates and increased abortion rates. That’s why assessing and maintaining herd health is critical to reproductive efficiency.

 

IDEXX tests make it easy to detect pregnancy early and conduct routine pregnancy confirmation to optimize reproductive performance. The IDEXX pregnancy tests detect pregnancy-associated glycoproteins (PAGs) to determine pregnancy status. The tests are accurate and convenient complements to routine palpation and ultrasound examinations.

IDEXX Milk Pregnancy Test

Availability/Distribution: Worldwide

 

The IDEXX Milk Pregnancy Test, is an enzyme-linked immunoassay for the detection of pregnancy-associated glycoproteins (PAGs) in bovine milk as a marker for pregnancy.

The IDEXX Milk Pregnancy Test confirms pregnancy status from 35 days post breeding and from 60 days post calving. This enables producers to identify open cows to ensure re-breeding in a timely manner.
