Get MOO-ving: Get started with bovine ultrasonography

Course Overview: This course is aimed at any veterinary surgeon wanting to start using ultrasound in cattle for fertility investigations and pregnancy diagnosis. This highly practical course aims to provide you with the knowledge and skills necessary to get the most out of using ultrasound in day to day farm visits.

The course will be a combination of lectures and practical scanning time which is being held on one of Ireland’s largest and most progressive dairy farms. This provides a fabulous opportunity to get to grips with what you can apply to the herds you visit and what you can offer your clients.

  • How to use the ultrasound equipment and practical guidance and tips on how to find and identify structures
  • Introduction to the non-pregnant uterus, ovarian activity and fertility management

  • Introduction to abnormalities of the ovaries, uterus and cervix
