Your Benefits.

Research determined that the cost of 1 empty cow alone is approximately 5 euro per day*. Therefore if you don’t have to wait 2 weeks or more for pregnancy checks to find empty cows, you can save a lot of money. 



Early identification of empty cows allows for early rebreeding, which assists in improving reproductive performance.

Improving reproductive performance



The test detects a highly specific marker of pregnancy: pregnancy-associated glycoproteins (PAGs). Unlike progesterone levels that fluctuate naturally during a cycle, PAGs are only produced in the presence of an embryo or fetus.



Reproductive efficiency improves when producers, veterinarians, breeding companies work together. 

Less handling of animals

The test can easily be implemented in your routine milk recording offered by your own lab. That means less handling and no extra stress for your animals.

With the IDEXX Milk Pregnancy Test, empty cows can be detected throughout gestation as soon as 28 days after breeding. 

Empty cow detection throughout gestation

Trusted by farmers across the globe. 

Over 20 million tests have already been performed

Test options.

28 - 65 days

post breeding

Early detection of cows, assists in early rebreeding. 10-12% of cows have embryonic loss between 25-60 days post AI

    70 - 110 days

post breeding

Rebreed empty cows while still economically viable.

    Late gestation

Prevent  treatment cost of empty cows and pregnant cows from being slaughtered
