Pregnancy Testing

How do we pregnancy test cattle at Rhodes Vet?

We offer a pregnancy testing service. This can either be done by rectal palpation or via a rectal probe.

When is the right time to pregnancy test?

The ideal time to preg test your cattle is between 6- 8 weeks. The more advanced the gestation, the less accurate the due date.

Fertility Testing

Fertility testing can be done on Bulls and/or Cows to improve in calf rates.

Bull Testing evaluates the quality of the reproductive system and semen, to check the bull’s soundness for breeding purposes.

Cows without a visible heat, cows returning to heat or aborting cows can be examined to help determine the cause of failures of pregnancy.

Lameness Treatment

Lame cows produce less milk and meat than their counterparts. We can examine lame cows and treat lameness using a range of tools to get your lame cows walking right faster and your herd more productive.
