Read more >Friday 20th of December 2019: Are you planning to pregnancy scan your cattle this year?
If so, we need to confirm your bull dates as soon as possible to make sure we test on the best day to suit you and your herd.
Scanning at the correct time after bull withdrawal can add value. Getting the timing right will enable us to identify late pregnancies, to age pregnancies, to scan into cycles or to identify twins.
If you are a Dairy Farmer and would like to use Infovet for recording, reporting and automatic uploading to LIC/CRV please give us a call so we can set up the system for your farm.
To ensure we can scan your cows at the optimal time please book in as soon as possible.
