Heifer Development Program

Would you like to take some of the unknown elements out of heifer selection and development? 
You can improve your odds of success by putting a Heifer Development program in place. This will increase your chances of culling out poor heifers early, before you have too much invested in them. Detection and removal of these poor replacement heifers should increase your conception rates, decrease calving difficulties, increase weaning weights, and uniformity of calves from heifers. This can be done pre-breeding, 40-60 days prior to AI or exposure to bulls. Our Heifer Development Program at Cedar Creek Animal Clinic includes Body Condition Scoring, Weighing, Frame Scoring, Pelvic Measurement and adjustments to account for age, Reproductive Tract Scoring with ultrasound, and Vaccinations and Deworming.
  1. Body Condition Scoring(1-9)- Cattle with BCS of 5-6 have higher conception rates, and    better chances of staying in the herd long term.
  2. Weighing- Heifers should be 60-65%(700-900#)of mature body weight to insure                reproductive readiness.
  3. Frame Scoring(4-9)-Research has shown that Frame Scores of 5-6 are optimal for              reproductive performance and decreasing calving difficulties.
  4. Pelvic Area Measurement(Height x Width)-A score of >150 cm2 at 1 year of age will aid in decreasing calving difficulties.
  5. Reproductive Tract Scoring(1-5)-It has been shown that pregnancy rates are increased if heifers are bred on their 3rd heat cycle or later. Scores of 3 or better of the Reproductive Tract are acceptable. 1-2 scores aren’t cycling yet, and by their removal will increase your conception rates.
  6. Vaccinations - Boosting vaccinations for Lepto, Vibrio along with the Viral diseases, will help keep your herd protected.

Give us a call to set up your appointment today, we want to get vaccinations done 30 days prior to breeding.

Pet Insurance

Similar to human health insurance, pet insurance helps provide peace of mind in case the unfortunate should happen. Its purpose is to help cover the costs of unexpected accidents and illnesses that may occur in the future. Unfortunately, it will not cover any current conditions your pet may have which are known as pre-existing conditions. This means that the ideal time to insure your pet is as early as possible so that anything that happens in the future will be covered.
