I watched the tutorial on their web site but no where on there does it say where I get the lab supplies. I need a certain needle and some of those vacuum tubes etc. I've never seen that at the farm store so where on earth do I find such things? Is there a web site I can order supplies? I must be missing something

you can go to biopryn on line for supplies. i just went to my vet local and ask for vacuum tubes. they have the needle also some draw it up in a regular syringe and needle and them transfer to vacuum tube. anns video shows this. let us know how it goes. i drew my blood from the tail when i did it. just a thought.

I bought vacuum tubes online. I think Valley Vet or possibly Jeffers... much, much cheaper. Same place for needles and syringes. I draw blood from the tail and the transfer it to the tubes. Of course be sure to use new and sterile every time. Very easy once you get the hang of it! Vicki

same here I use a 3cc syringe and needle from the feed store ,and can get a vacuum tube from the vet, a red top or mottled red top is what you use, my last order from PBS I just ordered a box cheaper then from biopryn Suzanne

I bought a kit from biotracking. Probably wouldn't do that in the future, but I could only find sets of 100 tubes which is like, "How many years will it take to use that up!?!?"
Biotracking sells SMALL kits, which is nice. But, I still use my own 3cc needles/syringe to draw the blood. Their concept of the double needle directly into the tube is really absurd for beginners. My husband's been dairying his whole life and even he was wondering how those could work effectively. LOL

claytonpaul: A bull was put on her herd Late Last May so she was expected to be due between May1 and August. They quoted me August so I wouldn't be disappointing by a late arrival.

alpacalexi: My mini jersey cow is pregnant, however the last couple days her udder has deflated. My vet saw her on the 23 and said delivery in a couple weeks Is there a reason for her deflating?

Trim: She probably aborted a while back. That happened to one of my animals. She was bagging up but within a short while of her "due date" she began to deflate. I had no idea what had happened. I was seriously bummed out.
