The determination of foetal sex is considered a valuable tool on modern-day dairy farms.

The determination of foetal sex is considered a valuable tool on modern-day dairy farms. This article aims to discuss both how foetal sexing determination can be diagnosed via Ultrasonography, and why this is such a valuable tool.

Although early Foetal sex determination is generally favoured, late foetal sex determination can be used during the time frame after early foetal sex determination has passed.

Foetal sex determination can be a valuable tool on modern-day dairy farms for a number of various reasons:

  • Many farmers prefer to carry out pregnancy diagnosis early at 30 days instead of the traditional 42 days
  • Identifying the foetal sex can help when making a decision about the fate of a cow
  • Knowledge of the foetal sex may be helpful to farmers when faced with a difficult calving

Determining foetal sex through the use of Ultrasonography is both accurate and safe when carried out between days 55 and 65 of pregnancy.
