Ultrasound Pregnancy Imaging of Cattle

How
The pregnancy testing of cows or ultrasound pregnancy imaging is done via a rectal probe. The end of the probe has an ultrasonic transducer that provides an image of the insides of the cow. This image is viewed on high definition goggles or on a monitor screen. The ultrasound probe is much smaller than a human arm, so it is much more comfortable for the cow

Why
The detection of pregnancy in cattle is extremely valuable. The identification of non-pregnant animals is essential if you wish to decrease numbers and remove these animals from your herd. Veterinary ultrasound machine also offers dating of the foetus. Dating is important if you wish to manage your calving or if you have animals grazed off your farm. Just because a cow is not showing signs of heat does not mean she is in calf, also cows can show signs of heat and actually be in-calf. All non-pregnant cows (empties) are then checked manually with veterinary ultrasound machine to provide assurance that they are actually empty.

When
The best time to test cattle is 6 weeks from the end of mating. 
For example
if you remove the bull on the 26th of December, then the best time is the 6th of February.
