BioTracking, Inc. introduces a new tool to the industry, the BioPRYNhfr-25 blood pregnancy test. At 25 days post-breeding, BioPRYNhfr-25 is an early, accurate open detection for heifers.
“BioPRYNhfr-25 gives dairy producers and heifer raisers an opportunity to increase their return on investment (ROI) by identifying open heifers earlier,” said Willy Tate, co-owner of BioTracking Inc.
A convenient and accurate tool, BioPRYNhfr-25 provides information to make timely, critical heifer reproductive management decisions. Having the ability to re-enroll heifers into a reproductive protocol earlier gives farmers the ability to reduce their herd’s age at first calving (AFC). “AFC is the most important benchmark for achieving the highest economic return from a replacement program,” said Tate. “For every month delayed beyond 22 months, AFC costs about $100 per heifer in lost milk production.”
Research in commercial settings confirms BioPRYN is 99.9% accurate when a heifer is identified as open 25 days post-breeding or greater. The BioPRYN® test is designed to detect Pregnancy-Specific Protein B (PSPB) in heifers as a result of their accelerated physiological response in initial development of placental tissues.
“BioPRYNhfr-25 is another tool in the toolbox to help make heifer reproductive management decisions. We’re excited about the opportunities this new early test offers dairy farmers and heifer raisers,” said Tate.
