Effect of fertility on the profitability of dairy cattle breeding

, : Effect of fertility on the profitability of dairy cattle breeding. Schweizer Braunvieh ( 8-9): 42-44

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.
