5 REASONS TO BLOOD PREGNANCY TEST

  1. Convenient - collect samples when it's convenient for you, rather than working around the veterinarian's schedule. 
  2. Increased Animal Productivity - increase the productivity of your animals by testing for pregnancy 25 days post breeding for heifers and 28 days post-breeding for mature cows.
  3. Cost Effective - compare the cost of the tests (less than $4/head) to the cost of carrying an open animal for 7-8 months. 
  4. Non-Invasive - blood testing is less invasive for the animal than the traditional rectal palpation method of testing for pregnancy. Blood testing reduces the risk of damaging a pregnancy and causing embryo loss.
  5. Accurate Results - open animals have a test accuracy of 99-100%. Pregnant animals have a test accuracy of 95% correct, this percentage is lower with the risk of early embryonic loss.
