Imaging specialist BCF Technology has launched a quick guide to help veterinary surgeons develop confidence in foetal sex determination using ultrasound.
Imaging specialist BCF Technology has released a new quick guide, designed to help veterinary surgeons learn the skill of foetal sex determination with ultrasound.
The quick guide, which is available free of charge from the BCF Technology website, has been launched as part of the company’s continued commitment to providing learning to the veterinary industry.
The guide provides:
- Detailed annotated images
- Tips on positioning the foetus
- Step-by-step written and image instruction
According to the company, using ultrasound for foetal sex determination can be useful to herd management programmes. You can estimate the number of replacement heifers, further justify the culling of a cow with chronic disease (mastitis, lameness etc.) and determine pricing for a sale and/or purchase.
The guides have been created by BCF in-house vet Kimberley Palgrave, who said: “The bovine foetal sexing guide was created with the aim of giving vets a few tips to help them develop confidence in foetal sex determination using ultrasound.
“Hopefully this guide can help people feel more assured in their technique and enable them to obtain additional information that the farmer can use in their herd management programme.”
