How come you decided to have them pd'd usung milk proteins? Surely just getting the vet in is cheaper and more accurate?
Seems a waste to get them done twice especially if one way is more guess work? Just curious!

Every week we have to get the milk tested for bacteria counts and how high the butterfat is. We heard that they could test to see if any where in calf by milk protein counts, so we said why not, when it came back with those results we were in such a panic, we still have to get the vet in to check them anyway in a couple of weeks. I am so hoping that it was not true, but if it is then we will have to do the whole programme again. I noticed last night the young bull was following one, not good. Could it be the weather? When I imported them they were already in calf to AI bulls, so they have been AI'd before.
the most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, loving concern.
