What We Do
Herd Health & Production Management (HH&PM).
It is a service that consists of several integrated veterinary and zootechnical activities, which are based on regular visits to the farm. This approach involves a risk assessment, a definition of the weak points and objectives, the planning of a strategy and a specific program to verify the results achieved. An economic evaluation of the production and health parameters is carried out.
Management of bovine reproduction
- Reproductive planning of cows and heifers.
- Diagnosis of early pregnancy with ultrasound.
- Ultrasound diagnosis of fetal sex.
- Embryo production and Embryo Transfer.
- Functional and clinical evaluation of breeding bulls: Breeding Soudness Evaluation.
- Performing standard operating procedures (SOPs)
- Management of human recursions in breeding.
The courses are intended for: veterinarians and veterinary students, breeders and technicians, breeding managers. The courses and seminars are also realized thanks to the support of the best international experts, in the different sectors covered by the seminar/course.
The course is aimed at those who want to learn the artificial insemination technique. The course lasts three days and includes three theoretical sessions and three practical sessions. The topics covered in the course are as follows: anatomy of the cow’s reproductive system, the estrous cycle, follicular dynamics, identification methods of estrus, synchronization of estrus, synchronization of ovulation, re-synchronization, semen management, necessary equipment for artificial insemination, thawing technique, artificial insemination technique, legislation.
The following topics are covered during the courses: physical principles of ultrasonography, ultrasound machines, ultrasound technique, the estrous cycle, the follicular dynamics, ultrasound check of the ovary: physio-pathology, ultrasound check of the uterus: physio-pathology, ultrasound diagnosis of pregnancy , use of Doppler for the diagnosis of non-pregnancy, ultrasound diagnosis of twin gestation, ultrasound diagnosis of fetal sex, early diagnosis of late embryonic death, ultrasound diagnosis of pathologies of pregnancy, ultrasound diagnosis of fetal malformations, economic evaluation related to the use of ultrasound in bovine reproduction.
The course is divided into 3 days and includes the following topics: anatomy of the bull’s reproductive system; clinical examination of the bull, particular objective examination of the external and internal reproductive system; classical ultrasound technique and ECO-Text; measurement of the scrotal circumference; thermography; semen collection and evaluation in field conditions; bull classification; legislation.
Two-day course dedicated to the planning of reproductive management in the cow and the heifer.
Two-day theoretical-practical course dedicated to the ultrasound diagnosis of pathologies of the lung, abdomen, udder, teat, umbilical region of the calf.
Three-day theoretical-practical course on calf health management. Effect of delivery on calf health; colostrum; causes of stillbirth; resuscitation of the newborn calf; calf morbidity and mortality in the first week of life; calf morbidity and mortality from the second week of life to weaning .Effect of gestation on future production and reproductive performance of the calf. Growth indices before and after weaning and reproductive and productive performance. Effect of the morbidity of the calf in the first 60 days of life on the productive and reproductive performance of the future cow.
Three-day theoretical-practical course. The course includes the study of the selection of the donor heifer/cow; programs of super ovulation for heifer and cows; embryo collection; classification of embryos; freezing of embryos. The course also includes the study of the selection of the recipient heifers/cow; the diagnosis of the corpus luteum; the classification of the corpus luteum; the embryo transfer technique.
One day seminar on health management of the transition period. The different tests that can be carried out to monitor the herd during this particular period of the productive life of the cow are illustrated.
One-day seminar on the management of dystocia. The course is divided into two parts: a theoretical part in which the physiology of calving is explained and all the main dystocia are described. A practical part created on phantom, where it is explained how to behave in the presence of different dystocia.
One day seminar on post partum management. During the course the cow’s health management strategy in the first 10th days post partum is illustrated. How to identify cows at risk of pathology, how to carry out a clinical visit.
One-day seminar dedicated to the reproductive management of the cow, between delivery and the 1st insemination. How to optimize the reproductive performance of cows during the 1st insemination? Inseminate as soon as possible or to get pregnant as soon as possible?
