Pregnancy Disorders

With A.I. and other breeding technology, there are some obstacles out of a producer’s control, such as whether the cow will take the first semen straw or whether she will abort the calf due to diet or stress. Repeat breeding, embryonic mortality and abortion are pregnancy disorders producers can face. In order to increase their cows’ pregnancy rate, farmers should make sure their cows are getting the nutrition they need and aren’t stressed mentally or from the weather.
