This session will cover the value of thoracic ultrasound regarding the diagnosis and prognosis for different types of thoracic disease in calves and adults.
This webinar will explore the key areas to analyse when discussing the fertility performance of a dairy herd. It will also discuss the key areas to investigate when considering poor performance of a herd and how to utilise this data in order to find the most effective recommendations and areas to focus on.
Synopsis Due to the successful genetic selection for higher milk production in Holstein dairy cows, a dramatic decline in fertility rates has been observed around in the world in recent decades. Therefore, herd management should focus the first 100 days postpartum to achieve optimum herd reproductive performance (calving interval less than 400 days). After calving, a cow has to overcome a series of physiological hurdles before becoming pregnant. The selection of timely diagnostic devices and methods, such as the calving alarm vaginal thermometer to predict the onset of calving, electronic hand-held BHBA measuring system to detect subclinical ketosis on the farm, long-term measurement of reticuloruminal pH by an indwelling and wireless data transmitting unit to monitor subclinical acidosis, monitoring rumination time to select cows for early treatment of subclinical metabolic diseases (subclinical ketosis, acidosis and/or hypocalcaemia) and/or clinical metritis, performing metabolic profile tests to detect subclinical metabolic diseases at the herd level, oestrus detectors and/or detection aids, on-farm P4 test to monitor specific events in the postpartum and service periods, early diagnosis of pregnancy and late embryonic/early foetal mortality by means of ultrasonography are vital to correctly identify problems and their potential causes to enable these issues to be rectified. The following monitoring and managing activities should be pursued during the early postpartum period to achieve or approach the optimal calving interval: monitoring the onset of calving and post parturient metabolic diseases, early diagnosis of post parturient uterine diseases, accurate detection of oestrus, correct timing of insemination, and accurate diagnosis of early pregnancy and embryonic loss. Despite higher milk production, acceptable fertility results can be achieved, even on large-scale dairy farms, if the impacts of the above factors that contribute to reduced fertility can be moderated.
The webinar will begin with a short talk on handling and restraint of pigs which will be followed by ideas for sedation, analgesia and anaesthesia. Then the surgery methods for common specific tasks will be described in growing pigs and adults. These will include; Simple castration, Castration in pigs with inguinal hernias, Foot trimming, Detusking boars, Rectal prolapse replacement, Vaginal prolapse replacement, Uterus Replacement, Treatment of uterine torsion, Caesarean section and Euthanasia
The objective of this webinar is to delve into the complicated world of bovine fertility. We will consider both beef and dairy cattle (bulls, cows and heifers) and how physiology, management, and husbandry all play a role in successful fertility outcomes. We will consider advanced breeding techniques alongside sire and heifer selection to improve fertility success and herd genetics and how manipulation of the natural cycles of the cows can have a positive effect on conception and herd fertility parameters. We will consider techniques such as BBSE, EBVs, genomics and pelvimetry as useful tools to identify the best animals for us to breed from.
An overview and update on parasite control in backyard poultry. How to monitor flocks for both Endoparasites and Ectoparasites, preventative control and treatment options.
This presentation will cover a practical approach on how to undertake thoracic ultrasound (TUS) in calves, we will go through how to perform the technique then look at pictures and videos to understand how to interpret the scans. We will then discuss how TUS can be used as part of a holistic whole-farm approach to engaging the farmer in youngstock respiratory health and moving them from a firefighting to a preventative mindset.
This webinar will focus on the challenges which farmer’s face in terms of achieving mortality, morbidity and growth rates and how veterinary surgeons can help farmers achieve their goals, using a herd health approach.
A high barren rate is mostly diagnosed retrospectively at pregnancy scanning or post-lambing. This makes investigating the problem difficult. Here we explore the underlying causes of high barren rates and possible cost-effective means of investigation.
Helping people to work with cattle more safely and without stress is something close to my heart. I know several people who have received life-changing injuries from on-farm accidents involving cattle, and sometimes unfortunately even resulting in death. I also see cows who are treated unfairly in some farm circumstances – and this is largely through ignorance rather than a downright cruel streak in the perpetrator. As an industry, we can do better. Vets can be at the heart of the stress-free stockpersonship revolution, if they chose to up-skill themselves. This webinar will help to do that.
