AHDB Beef & Lamb Contents How fertility affects profitability The annual stocktake figures for suggest that there is room for improvement to reach the target of 94 calves born per cows or heifers put to the bull. Increasing the fertility of a suckler herd will result in: • Increased number/weight of calves weanedFile Size: KB. Improving Genetics in the Suckler Herd • Research at Teagasc Grange has shown beneﬁts to beef suckler cow replacements from the dairy herd having late-maturing “continental” sires rather than early-maturing British beef breed genetics. For example, spring-calving Limousin x Friesian cows were compared with Hereford xFile Size: KB. The profitability of a suckler herd is directly related to the number of calves reared per cow or heifer served annually. This guide covers aspects of suckler cow management that can help improve the health, welfare and productivity of your herd.

The effects of body condition score (BCS) of 20 or 30 units at calving (low v. moderate), post-partum energy intake at 06 or 10 MJ metabolizable energy (ME) per day per kg M075 (low v. high) and unrestricted or restricted (once daily) suckling on the ability of cows to ovulate were studied in a 2 2 2 factorial design with each treatment replicated eight by:
1. Introduction. In beef cattle, pregnancy/AI (P/AI) is one of the most limiting factors to increase herd reproductive efficiency. Pregnancy/AI is usually 40% to 60% in timed-artificial insemination (TAI) programs,, indicating that a large proportion of inseminated beef cows fails to become pregnant.A considerable portion of this failure is caused by embryonic losses that occur during Cited by: Dairy cows that are not nutritionally stressed generally ovulate their first post-partum dominant follicle (approximately 15 days), whereas beef suckler cows in good body condition normally have a mean of +/- dominant follicles (approximately 30 days) to first ovulation; and beef cows in poor body condition have a mean of +/- Cited by: There have been few studies published internationally which document herd health management practices in suckler beef herds and no published Irish studies. The study objective was to document herd health status and management practices on sixteen Irish suckler beef herds over a two year period (–). The farms used in the study were part of the Cited by: 3. ELSEVIER INDUCTION OF OVULATION IN POSTPARTUM SUCKLED BEEF COWS: A REVIEW Y. Yavas and J.S.
