Abstract
The replacement of natural service by Artificial Insemination as an improvement tool in the cattle industry requires great emphasis on fertility. For this 'reason, early confirmation of pregnancy as soon as possible after service IS very important. The fact that an inseminated cow fails to return, to oestrus is not a sure sign that she is pregnant. Fifteen percent or more of all dairy cows not observed in oestrus after the last service were not pregnant when examined after 60 days or so since the last service (Belling, 1964 and Zemjanis, 1970).
