Thanks. What protocol did you have before the above mentioned? At the moment im sitting on £50 an animal 2 x beef straws included. I binned the prids after the first group, someone then told me if cleaned and sealed up you can reuse them up to 3 times. At least the vet is making moneyxbred herd, with some purish, and x. We serve to oestrus strips for 8/9 days, then prelim, and serve to strips, we do this with the cows, as well. Our autumn block of cows, 55 to serve, 52 caught in 21 days, very cost effective, when compared to the full works we used to do ! This will be block serving number 4, doing it this way.
Jerseys are definitely different characters, one back last spring, went around nibbling all the oestrotect strips, so they were all coloured, halfway through the service period, hassle. We have one, that will walk up to you, and present the 'bit' she wants scratched, if you get it wrong, she will give you a very hard shove ! Luckily, when we first did the sync, our vet told us about the jerseys !
