Farm animal fertility talk at Tay Valley Vets

Last Wednesday Clare Turnbull from CEVA presented an illustrated talk on fertility in beef cows and sheep. She concentrated on the importance of maintaining a tight calving interval and talked about the use of synchronisation methods to facilitate AI and the benefits that could bring.

With Sheep she concentrated on the causes of abortion particularly Enzootic abortion (Chlamydia) and the huge impact that had on profit. Vaccination of gimmers is important to prevent abortion storms and farmers need to be thinking ahead now about vaccinating prior to the start of the tupping season.
