Checking Cattle Pregnancy
Our main goal in the cattle industry is to produce calves. An optimal goal is for a cow to produce one calf every 365 days (one year). This can be difficult at times because producers have to ensure that a cow is being bred on her first or second cycle, after giving birth to her calf. The reason for this goal is the cost of maintaining a cow is expensive. If the female cow is not bred, then she is eating food that is an expense, without revenue.
