Why is she open? 


An open pregnancy result can suggest the presence of disease.

Bovine viral diarrhea virus

What: Bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDV) suppresses a cow's immune system, making the animal susceptible to a host of other infections. That's why BVDV is one of the world's most costly bovine diseases, with losses of $15–$88 per head from reduced herd productivity, health, and reproductive efficiency.1

Johne's disease

What: The Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis (MAP) organism causes a chronic, debilitating enteritis of cattle and other ruminants, leading to lower pregnancy rates, reduced milk production, and milk with lower fat and protein content and higher somatic cell scores. In the U.S. alone, MAP infection (Johne’s disease) costs producers up to $250 million per year.2

Neospora

What: Neospora caninum is a protozoal (Apicomplexan) parasite that has been described to cause abortion and neonatal morbidity in cattle, sheep, goats, and horses. It has been reported as one of the most important causes of abortion in dairy cattle. Hosts for this disease include dogs and wildlife. Primary transmission is through congenital infections and the spread of Neospora oocysts.
