In our last blog, we looked at fetal aging via ultrasound as a big benefit of imaging over traditional palpation in bovine reproduction.

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.
It has been a year of trials and tribulation and tragedy and triumph for us here at E.I. Medical Imaging. This is a look back at what was a year somewhat like a roller coaster ride. A year of very good high times and a year of some low points. We have weathered the storms of the year and we look forward to a 2014 filled with its own challenges, opportunities and I am sure difficult times as well. Here is a look back at 2013.
