Accuracy of rectal palpation in the diagnosis of ovarian function in the cow


, : Accuracy of rectal palpation in the diagnosis of ovarian function in the cow. Veterinary Record 96(10): 218-220

The genital tracts of 85 cows slaughtered 24 hours after rectal examination, and of 95 cows slaughtered 48 hours later, were dissected. The estimate of ovarian contents made at rectal examination proved correct in 83% of ovaries but in only 67% of cows. Half the wrong diagnoses were due to failure to diagnose the presence of follicles or small cysts in ovaries otherwise empty. Corpora lutea were diagnosed accurately in 89% of the ovaries containing them.
