Reproductive performance of your dairy cows

Managing dairy cow reproduction is a constant challenge in dairy production. An optimal calving interval promotes profitable milk production. 

Working with your advisory team on the farm, we can help you achieve your breeding goals.


An optimal reproductive strategy aims to reduce the number of days your cows are open and GestaLab, by its accuracy and simplicity, will help you reach this objective.

Pregnancy detection in milk sample

When the time comes to assess whether or not your cow is pregnant, you need accurate information; and the sooner, the better! GestaLab test can detect pregnancy as early as 26 days, post breeding, through milk analysis. 

GestaLab testing can be done on your milk-recording sample. If your farm is in Quebec or the Atlantic Provinces, you can also take a sample yourself between milk recording tests.
