On July 11, within the framework of the #FONTAGRO project, early pregnancy diagnosis by ultrasonography was performed in one of the demonstration fields in the Los Menucos - Cerro Bandera area.
In this opportunity we visited the Cuifí Ruka establishment, and the producer Jorge Fernandez.
We remind you of the advantages of early pregnancy diagnosis:
a) It allows to know the success or failure of the service b) It allows to separate, if necessary, the non-pregnant ewes c) It allows to eliminate low fertility ewes d) It helps to have a better knowledge of the reproductive behavior of the rams used for the service.
In this case, the producer keeps a herd of mothers that he supplements during the winter season, a useful technology to avoid animal mortality and to maintain or improve the body condition of the mothers.
