What's my  $$ Return by investing in a Repro-Scan unit.

This is an example to show you the financial benefits of doing your own Pregnancy testing. 

Gain the Benefits of

  • Preg testing at your convenience
  • Preg testing as early as 5 weeks
  • Increased accuracy
  • Reduced processing time
  • Less stress on cattle and the operator
  • No more getting a sore arm!

Assumptions used:

  • Investment amount of a Repro-scan unit including training $15600 plus GST
  • Per head rate based on Preg Test  $ 3.50 per head
  • Mistaken diagnosis of manual Preg Testing is often as high as 5 – 6%
  • The aim is to reduce the mistaken diagnosis rate by just 2%. A conservative value of $500 has been applied to each mistaken diagnosis.

For Example:

  1. A cow incorrectly diagnosed “Empty” and then sold. An estimated loss of $500 applied.
  2. A cow incorrectly diagnosed “In calf” and retained.

(This is a non-productive cow being feed $3 per week in grass, plus animal health costs, plus possible supplement feed costs and then not producing a saleable weaner. An estimated loss of $500 has been applied)
