Add milk pregnancy testing to your next herd test, it’s the convenient way to tell if your girls are expecting after 28 days – without them knowing.
But why stop there? Combining animal health checks to your herd test could uncover subclinical Staph aureus, Johnes disease, those who produce A2/A2 milk, as well as your herd’s production worth (PW) to help you make better calls.
Talk to your Agri Manager about adding pregnancy or animal health checks to your next herd test.

Short Gestation Length (SGL) semen allows you to get cows in-calf late in mating. Using SGL semen should condense your calving spread, give more time for cows to recover and generate more days of milk. Not only can this boost your profits, but SGL is also a cost-effective alternative to using natural mating bulls in weeks 7 to 10.
Talk to your Agri Manager about SGL options for your herd.
