    Earlier in the thread I posted a link to a pdf file. I am no expert on embryos, but here is what it says on grade/quality numbers. page 31/32 - Grade/quality numbers are 1-4. They refer to the composition and quantity of debris that is not part of the main cell mass. To rephrase - When a...

    Simme, I agree. However, after flushing embryos they should be examined under a microscope to determine the stage. The stages are 1 - 9, but viable embryos are stage 4, 5, 6 or 7. The stage is determined by how much the embryo has grown and not necessarily how many days it was before the...

    Poor mothering heifer, second chance or ship?

    I think it's too late for a happy reunion. The heifer has no clue the calf belongs to her. Something happened in the night during parturition. Hard to say what if no one was there. If the heifer was springing maybe she could have been penned by herself? My concern is why the calf is very...

    Cat 3 to Cat 2 Conversion

    Consensus is the unroller has Cat 2 and you want Cat 1. It has all ready been suggested that you replace the lift arm pins. You can even get double-sided pins. Cat 1 on one end and Cat 2 on the other end.

    When can I justify owning a bull??

    I got hung-up on the word "certified" so I'm wondering... What kind of training was that? Lots of people AI, but they're not necessarily certified.
