Endometritis

Endometritis is inflammation of the endometrium (uterine lining) usually caused by bacterial infection at calving.

Endometritis in dairy cows leads to
• more non-cycling cows
• lower in-calf rates
• reduced conception rates
• higher empty rates

Endometritis can be detected via inspection of vaginal mucous and secretions. The presence of any discolouration or flecks of pus in this fluid is likely a sign of infection.

Regular checks of cows (eg Metricheck) should be made between calving and mating for best results.
Treatment of endometritis with intrauterine cephapirin (MetriVet) has shown
• Improved conception rates
• Higher in-calf rates
• Lower empty rates
Treated cows have significantly more days in milk, providing farmers with higher revenue.
