Effect of fertility on the profitability of dairy cattle breeding

Schweizer Braunvieh ( 8-9): 42-44
Effect of fertility on the profitability of dairy cattle breeding
Data on 45 herds were analysed. For cows in mountain herds, the number of inseminations per conception averaged 1.8 vs. 1.97 for lowland herds, 17% of cows required at least 3 inseminations vs. 24, and service period averaged 93 days vs. 100, the corresponding figures for cows kept in loose housing barns being 1.94, 21% and 97 days, and those for tethered cows being 2.0, 27% and 104 days. Fertility was satisfactory in 35 of the herds, unsatisfactory in 7 herds and poor in 3 herds.
