This test offers a safe, accurate, and easy alternative for confirming pregnancy in goats. A doe can be tested for pregnancy at 30 days or later post breeding or buck removal.
Cows can be tested for pregnancy at 28 days (heifers at 25) or later after breeding and at least 73 days post-calving.
Using BioPRYN assures accuracy. The assay is greater than 99 percent accurate when an animal is categorized as open, giving producers confidence to administer prostaglandin and restart a synchronization program to artificially inseminate (AI), turn their females out with the herd bull or cleanup bull, or cull the animal. The false-pregnant (false-positive) rate for the test is approximately 5 percent. It is presumed that a portion of this variance is due to early embryonic death, which is a challenge regardless of which method is used for pregnancy detection.
Enables you to very accurately diagnose pregnancy without having to physically handle the developing fetus and fetal membranes.
A delay in rebreeding will increase the number of days a cow is open and extend the length of the calving season. Implementing a controlled breeding season using BioPRYN that results in a tight calving window of 90 days or less has several advantages:
University experts have determined the cost savings associated with shorter breeding seasons. Results from Arkansas Beef Improvement Program (ABIP) Breeding and Calving Season demonstrations from the University of Arkansas report that reduced breeding season led to:
"Definitely improved our PR"
When Scott returned to the dairy the Pregnancy Rate was in the low 20's. Now, the rolling twelve month Pregnancy Rate is 27%. "BioPRYN has definitely improved our Pregnancy Rate just because of our ability to find open cows quickly."
"Convenient and non-invasive"
We found the test to be very convenient and non-invasive. There is no risk of any kind of an abortion or taking a pregnancy with the blood test. You don’t have to worry about having to call a vet to come in and you can do it as often as you like.
The BioPRYN Test is a great tool for detecting open cows! It helps us to reduce the days the cows are open. Also it is essential for my Organic Farmers that I work with. Since they’re not able to use hormones they need to know right away if their cows and heifers are open.
"Keeps our breeding program on track."
One of the benefits of having Nigerian Dwarf goats is that they are polyestrous and can be bred year round. We don’t really have a dry period because we stagger their breeding for a year round supply of milk. Blood testing helps us keep our breeding program on track. The staff at Precision is quick, accurate, and ALWAYS friendly.
