Services > Cow & Heifer Pregnancy Testing

We offer a cattle pregnancy scanning service. We can test manually, or use real-time ultrasound scanners. The first method is stationary at cow bale/platform, the latter a mobile back pack on cat-walk platform or trolly.

All methods have their advantages and disadvantages. Call us to find out what suits you best

Earliest times for testing after bull withdrawal are:

  Manual Scanning
Heifers 42 days 35 days
Cows 56 days 35 days

To age pregnancies or identify lates, timing is critical.

If you’d like to book some cattle in for pregnancy scanning, simply follow the link below to complete the details electronically.
