Don’t just take our word for it. Here is what Dr. Blakely has to say about our training courses! “The course environment was a positive and fun learning environment. I felt open to ask questions and participate. I would recommend this course to practitioners, technicians, and veterinary students. I found it very helpful for myself as a new veterinarian but also found it beneficial to enroll my technician in the course.
Producers up north, cannot imagine not pregnancy testing their cows. They have had one of the toughest Februarys on record, and the hay piles are getting smaller by the day. They sure don’t want to be feeding any open cows in their herds this winter. It is easy to become envious of southern ranchers who must supplement their herds much less in what they might call “winter”. Our question to you southern ranchers is, does it pay to pregnancy test beef cows in places like Florida and southern Texas?

How long should your breeding season be? The cattle business is amazing in its diversity of geographical locations and management styles. Every ranch must adapt to their environment and resources and strive to be a competitive producer of calves and feeder cattle. One of the many decisions to make each year is, how long should your breeding season be? One quick answer is, not much different than last year. Cows will need 30 to 90 days after calving to get themselves ready to conceive again.
