The primary benefit of the ReproArm is saving your shoulder (and some time). Using the ReproArm during my own pregnancy was a tremendous help in reducing the physical stress on my body and making my work much safer. In addition, the ReproArm seems easier on the animal and in the right facility, increases our speed. As for an initial learning curve, it has taken me a few hundred head to feel really comfortable that I am calling opens, open and not missing pregnancies.

When preg checking, I’m doing the ultrasounding, and I’ll help give shots, help load the alleys and chute, re-tag, etc. So it was important to me to be able to move freely around the chute. Using the monitor and ReproArm, I’m able to help do other things as much as I can without cords or anything getting in my way........ We are so happy with our decision to make the switch!

We are getting along really well with the XTC, I really like it. I’ve pregged a lot of cows with it for the simple reason of saving my arm, and I’m really liking it on a variety of chute setups. I really like the monitor, I’ve used it on some really sunny days hanging in all different directions, and I’m really happy with the image and not having to be attached to the equipment.

We were prepared to stumble through the learning curve by ourselves, but to have an on-site trainer proved invaluable and a huge benefit provided by ReproScan.

Having an ultrasound for my externship led to vast improvements in my ultra-sounding proficiency in both reproductive exams and calf lung ultrasounds. I liked the slenderness and low profile of the probe that I was using. It was especially good for fitting in between the rib spaces and behind the triceps when scanning calf lungs. The screen was a useful tool to allow others to observe the imaging, especially with calf lung ultrasound.

I think the ultrasound course we attended was well done. the instructors knew their material and kept it interesting. We had plenty of cattle to practice with. I would recommend the course.

Great course for going over the basics of ultrasounding/fetal aging/fetal sexing. The lecture was great for going over what to look for. During u/s- both instructors were so helpful at walking you through little movements and exactly what you were looking at.

I was very impressed by the instructors and the course as a whole. They were very knowledgeable and were great about answering questions. Their teaching method was easy to understand and very engaging. I feel much more confident in my ability to accurately diagnose, date, and sex pregnancy in cattle. I’m very excited to preg check our cows and practice my new skills.
-Wayne Potter DVM; Dell, Montana
Overall, the instructors and course were very beneficial to my learning how to better ultrasound. By taking this course, I now have a better understanding of identifying fetal aging on the screen and have a quick resource to look at with the handy printed sheet. Additionally, the course allowed me to better visualize the setup of the machine chute-side, and practice with the introducer tool effectively. The instructors were very knowledgeable, approachable, and helpful with hands-on learning. This is a course I would recommend to my colleagues.

The training course was great! I appreciated seeing the videos and having landmarks pointed out to me on the first day to use the second day during the wet lab

ReproScan is a company with class. They are very quick to respond to questions, inquiries, and services. We have been using ReproScan equipment for 7 yrs and have had little reason to contact them because the equipment is reliable. On a couple of occasions, I had to reach out because I was concerned about our unit. A quick response over the phone was able to get me back up and running in no time.
Thank You ReproScan!

Using the ReproScan was incredibly useful to develop confidence in identifying and staging pregnancies. This will aid me greatly when I am soon out on my own after graduation in May.

The Flexx ultrasound was great! I learned a lot and feel I made big strides in my abilities. It was a great learning experience for me.

I have been very happy with my experience with ReproScan! Maureen has been my inside contact since I began looking at purchasing my Flexx in 2019. I never have any issues getting help when I need it and they are quick to respond when I have questions!
