I am an avid reader of Bovine Magazine, okay I have a confession, I am not a hard copy magazine guy as I like to get my news and information in the digital world using my phone or tablet. We pay very close attention to what is happening in the bovine veterinary world as a large portion of our target demographic comes from the bovine veterinary market. In fact, we currently have a campaign to help the veterinarian with their practice in the bovine market in both the beef and dairy segments. Our campaign is about, "Helping your practice makes perfect sense." We feel a responsibility to help the veterinarian with their everyday practice to insure they are getting the most from our Ibex® Portable Ultrasound System.

Dr Kesterson in Bridgeport, Nebraska knows that offering ultrasound to preg check cows gives his producers invaluable information for making management decisions.

Ever wished you could just suggest what human fertility doctors often do to get their patients to relax and conceive? “Here, Bessie, have a glass of wine.”
Well, until they make such a cocktail for cows, Dr. Dan Goehl, DMV, who runs the Canton Veterinary Clinic in Canton, Mo., swears by “breeding boxes” for reducing stress during reproductive-related procedures.
We at E.I. Medical Imaging get asked all the time, "How early can I use ultrasound in a cow?" or "How early can I preg check my cows?"....and of course there is not one correct answer to this question.
There are numerous variables to consider when determining the best time or day to ultrasound cows for pregnancy (or lack of pregnancy= open cows!).
