Fertility Management Systems Farming Note

If you don't see a cow bulling, she won't be served, and this leads to higher culling rates and extended calving intervals. The cost of extending the calving interval over 365 days is £4.50/cow/day. With the UK average calving index currently at 420 days, this equates to a cost of £37,125 per year for a typical 150 cow herd. This Farming Note looks at different reproductive management systems on the market.

Issued November 2008.
