oa Agriprobe - An easy way to monitor : reproduction management in dairy herds

Volume 8, Issue 4
  • ISSN : 1810-9799



The fertility of dairy cows is decreasing worldwide. This is mainly attributed to the continued selection for higher milk yields. Other factors that may influence this problem are larger herds which means that high-producing cows get less attention while fewer labourers are familiar with the normal reproductive cycle of dairy cows. Additional problems may be caused by poor heat observation and insemination techniques. In spite of this, many producers have very successful reproduction management programmes for their dairy herds. These producers pay particular attention to critical management indicators to prevent a decline in the reproduction management of their dairy herds as a turnaround takes a considerable time.
