Assessing the reproductive performance of your dairy cows

The assessment of the reproductive success of your herd should be based on objective data analysis. From the data provided in the milk recording reports, our dairy production advisors and technicians can assess the situation and monitor the various reproductive parameters of your herd. With your authorization, this data will also become available to your team of key collaborators, including your veterinarian.

A wide range of factors can influence the reproductive performance of your dairy cows. Whether it's adjusting your feed plan, reviewing transition management or even improving barn comfort, we have the complementary expertise to offer specific solutions that will contribute to a successful reproduction strategy for your herd.

Pregnancy detection in milk with GestaLab

When the time comes to assess whether or not your cow is pregnant, you need accurate information; and the sooner, the better! Our GestaLab test can detect pregnancy as early as 28 days, post breeding, through milk analysis. You can ask for a GestaLab test using the milk recording samples or take a sample yourself and send it to us at any time between milk recording tests.

An optimal reproductive strategy aims to reduce the number of days your cows are open and GestaLab, by its accuracy and simplicity, will help you reach this objective.

Is GestaLab reliable?

A clinical trial on Quebec farms, conducted in collaboration with veterinarians, demonstrated that GestaLab is a gestational detection method as reliable as ultrasound, between 28 and 45 days.
