Did your Submission Rate hit the mark?

October 25, 2021

Many of you will be hitting the 3 week point of mating in the coming days and we are already hearing stories of farmers disappointed in their 3-week Submission Rates.

If your submission rate is less than 90% or even if it’s more than that and you’re still worried, then now is the time to act.

If you do nothing then you are leaving it to chance, but if you act quickly it is still possible to give these animals three chances at mating before Christmas. By utilising a CIDR sooner we can reduce the empty rate of these cows and get another AB calf or use a short gestation semen to gain up to 10 days in milk next season.

Call the clinic on 07 888 8197 to book in, or to discuss with one of our vets.
