Ultrasound scanning for pregnancy

Experienced diagnosis for sheep and goats

Ultrasound scanning is available for pregnancy diagnosis in sheep and goats. 

Scanning is undertaken by Derek Stoakes who holds the RCVS Certificate in Sheep Health & Production. The scanning is a unique service, providing detailed information about foetal numbers and gestational stage. A computer-generated report is sent to all farmers and their vets. Ewes and nannies can then be separated into groups according to pregnancy stage and number of lambs, and this can yield significant savings in both feed and shed space.
