Block Calving – To Estrumate or CIDR?
Six-week in-calf rate is an important marker of reproductive performance in seasonal calving dairy herds. During autumn 2019, George undertook a research project, comparing the usefulness of CIDRs for treatment of cows that had not been showing signs of heat before the beginning of the breeding season. In this presentation George discusses his results and the take-home messages from this project.
