Blood Antibodies (Serum Total Proteins): Failure of passive transfer increases the risk of calfhood disease and associated downstream effects. Measurement of blood antibody levels (serum total protein) in calves allows us to determine the success of current colostrum management practices. We can collect blood samples at herd health, or blood samples can be dropped off at the clinic and results will be provided in 24-48 hours.
Calf growth: Measuring heifer growth allows us to evaluate whether input costs are reflected by heifer performance, or to identify opportunities for a more cost-effective heifer program
Reproduction: We can customize reproductive programs to fit and meet your goals in heifer raising
Record analysis: As with mature lactating cows, we can analyze DHI and on-farm records to guide reproductive programs, detect potential issues early, and identify areas of opportunity for increased profitability.
