What female fertility information should I be collecting?
All ‘events’ associated with the joining of their females from the start of the mating period in each breeding season through to when the subsequent calves are born should be recorded.
Broadly, the information to be collected should include:
1. Joining details of all females mated within the herd, including within natural, artificial insemination or embryo transfer programs.
2. Details of all females removed from the herd, particularly those present at joining that were no longer within the herd by the time of the subsequent calving.
3. Details of all calves (dead or alive) that are born as a result of these joinings.
4. Pregnancy test results for all females
