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.

Born In The USA...It's Hard These Days!

By Chas Maloy on Tue, Jun 04, 2019 @ 08:46 AM

For this latest blog installment, I have decided to go a bit off topic. As a small business owner, I am asked all the time—how, or more importantly why, do you run an engineering and manufacturing company in the U.S. these days. Well, it is a great question and one that keeps me up at night.

You cannot turn on the news, regardless of how you get your news, to hear the dismal stories of American manufacturing jobs leaving the US.

Understanding Gain in Ultrasound

By Erika Wierman, DVM on Tue, Feb 05, 2019 @ 02:38 PM

All ultrasounds have gain control. It’s often a knob, button, and/or a series of sliders on the console, and it’s one of the most used and adjusted scanning parameters... but do you know what it really does?

Most people think of gain as a brightness adjuster, and while it’s true that turning your gain up will brighten the image, it’s helpful to understand how it actually works. Gain is a uniform amplification of the ultrasonic signal that is returning to the transducer after it travels through the tissue. So rather than brightening the monitor, the image on the screen is whitened by a uniform margin, as though the returning signal is stronger than it is, to make it easier to see.

I would have to say if I was keeping track of what this year has been thus far, I would call it the "Year of The Shark". We have had our share of great turtle news this year but by far our involvement with the ultrasound research of sharks has been the most exciting. The image below provides an up close and personal look at what it looks like on a research expedition with the OCEARCH team as they tag, blood sample and of course ultrasound a Great White Shark.
