Metritis Farming Note

Good uterine health is critical to launch cows on a healthy, productive course after calving. Between 15 and 25% of all fresh cows and 80% of cows with retained cleanings experience metritis or endometritis. This has several knock-on consequences including impaired fertility, prolonged days open and increased susceptibility to other ailments. 

This Farming Note covers:

  • The difference between metritis and endometritis and their causes
  • Clinical signs and diagnosis
  • Prevention and management
  • Retained placentas

Issued April 2006.
