Managing Twinning Farming Note

Twinning is undesirable as the stress of carrying two foetuses compromises the cow's energy balance, and this can lead to poor performance after calving. It is crucial that the management of high risk cows is carefully monitored to prevent any negative post-calving issues occurring.

This Farming Note covers:

  • Problems occurring in the cow
  • Early identification of twin carrying dams
  • Management action plan

Issued November 2009.
