Now we have another good excuse to cull cows due to bad temperament. Producers that routinely breed cows artificially realize that cows that are unruly and nervous are less likely to conceive to artificial insemination. Presumably, the lowered conception rates were because they have been stressed as they are passed through the working facilities and restrained while being synchronized and inseminated. Research trials indicate, even in the serenity of a natural breeding pasture, cows with bad dispositions are less likely to conceive when mated with bulls.

Mummification in bovine fetuses has an incidence of less than 2%. It occurs when there is fetal death for any number of reasons (Trichomoniasis and BVD infections have been specifically implicated as causes), but the CL is retained, the cervix stays closed, and there is no bacteria or oxygen present in the uterus to cause maceration.

By Jim Turner on Fri, Mar 14, 2014 @ 10:23 AM

At E.I. Medical Imaging we get a number of questions about our product but we also get use case questions from many of our current customers and general questions from the public about bovine reproduction and other issues in our industry.  One recent conversation I wanted to share with you as many of you may have this question. I thought it would be good to share with all of our customers and potential users.  The question I will put forth first and the response to the question was written by our very own in house veterinarian, Dr. Erika Wierman. Dr. Wierman is heading up our education and training here at E.I. Medical Imaging and we will soon be launching more information about our program.  For now we will be happy to respond to questions like these:

Bovine Reproduction and the ROI of Portable Ultrasound

Ibex Use In Bovine Reproduction

As we sit here in the midst of completing our budgets for 2014 at E.I. Medical Imaging a common question is for us to look at expenditures for the previous couple of years and ask, "What was the return on the investment?"  Suffice it to say this is a question asked in any business setting and for any department.  The same can be said for veterinarians and livestock producers.  As the title of the article here infers, what is the return on investment of purchasing a portable ultrasound system?  We here at E.I. Medical Imaging are the first to try to find ways to make the systems we sell more affordable for our customers.  In fact we discuss this at length every time we get together in a sales meeting, a marketing strategy session, and even now as we prepare our budgets for 2014.
