Scanning cows between Drimoleague and Bantry Tuesday morning I headed south, to west cork to scan cows for a client between Drimoleague and Bantry. This farmer has off farm business interests and needed to get on top of his breeding programme for spring calving next year. He also presented cows which were the tail end of is breeding programme for the winter. As he had been away he wanted to maximise the submission rate to the first point of breeding for the spring calving season. He had started breeding cows at the start of April and decided to use our services to conduct a pre-breed scan of cows not already detected in heat to synchronise them to ensure that all cows eligible for service were bred within the next week and those cows not eligible for service were managed to ensure a high submission rate for the next 4/5 weeks.
