Heat-Detection Aids
CIDR® inserts
Approved for lactating dairy cows, CIDRs can help narrow the window of estrus and improve timing and efficiency of your current breeding program. Synchronize heats and induce estrus. Insert CIDR to continuously release progesterone, then remove seven days later, heat detect, and breed. (40CIDR01)
