Preventing Cow Fertility Problems
Ensuring that the cow transitions from dry cow to production in the correct manner will greatly improve cow fertility issues. Care is needed to ensure that the uterus is in the best condition to start a new reproductive cycle – by reducing the risk of milk fever and metritis, and minimising any retained cleanings, the cow is in the best condition to go back in calf.
Calving intervals are also important – farmers should be aiming for a calving interval of 365 days to ensure optimal performance.
Eliminating mineral deficiencies in the herd is a proven approach to preventing cow fertility problems. The minerals that have the biggest impact on cow fertility are Copper, Iodine, Selenium and Phosphorus. Low levels of these minerals in cows can lead to undetected or poor heats, poor conception rates and embryonic loss.
The TERRA NutriTECH system helps deliver precisely what the herd needs each day. Key Minerals can be dosed separately, and all systems dose accurately as they monitor water consumption patterns. This precision increases animal health and helps farms become more profitable, reduce waste, lower emissions, and reduce labour.
