TESTIMONIALS

Trusted by thousands of farmers around the world

The test is great and non-intrusive, with no added stress for cows or me! Anything that saves labour, is a plus in my book

Quick, accurate and easy, the test allows me to know if a cow is pregnant or not after just 28 days! I find it particularly useful for those “she might have held cows!”

I do the test through my milk recordings, so all I have to do is get a list of the cows!

There is no hassle, no stress, no handling! Milk Pregnancy Testing is my primary form of pregnancy confirmation

We have been using the milk pregnancy tests – the postal version for 3 years and find it very good! The test allows me to focus on cows that come back empty, and actions can be taken on them, I wouldn’t be without it to be honest
