What is BioPRYN ?

BioPRYN (Pregnancy Ruminant Yes/No) is a pregnancy detection procedure for cattle, sheep, elk, goats, bison, and deer. It measures the presence of Pregnancy-Specific Protein B (PSPB) in the blood stream. PSPB is a protein produce by the placenta. BioPRYN begins with collection of a blood sample from your cow. Then you ship the samples to Laurel Hill Veterinary Services where an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) is performed. Reports are available within 27 hours of lab setup and may be downloaded directly into dairy management software. Using BioPRYN assures accuracy. When the dairy manager or veterinarian draws blood samples from the cows at the correct time (28 days) after breeding and 73 days after calving, the pregnancy question is known within 27 hours.

CAE Testing

Caprine Arthritis and Encephalitis (CAE) is a retroviral infection of goats which may lead to chronic disease of the joints and in rare occasions (in goat kids less than six months of age) encephalitis (an infection in the brain). CAE is a widespread condition of goats across the world. The virus is directly connected to the production of white blood cells, so any body secretions which contain these cells are potential sources of infection for other members of the herd. Because there is no cure for CAE, it is best to avoid it all together by use of proper herd testing and culling.
