In 2003, Dr. Andrew Bronson adapted extension arm ultrasound into his bovine practice. He was one of the first veterinarians in North America to do so. This technology was very useful in 2005 when the USDA opened the border to live Canadian cattle imports. Legislation required all Canadian export heifers to be pregnancy checked by a veterinarian and only open heifers were eligible for export. Drs. Bronson and Hill formed Livestock Export Services and used extension arm ultrasound equipment to successfully pregnancy check over 150,000 fat feedlot heifers in the 2 years that these regulations were in place.
During these years, it became evident that a different type of rectal probe with a larger scanning area would find pregnancies and the open uterus faster than a traditional linear rectal probe. This led to experimentation with convex rectal probes and eventually led to the development of the original ReproScan 200. The ReproScan 200's 4.0 MHz convex rectal probe along with the ReproArm were engineered to enable fast and accurate pregnancy diagnosis without putting one's arm into the cow's rectum. A few million head later the ReproScan equipment has evolved into the new XTC and BoviScan models. These portable, durable, functional, and affordable ultrasound units are used by many veterinarians and cattle operators from the frozen Quebec North in Canada, across the Texas Panhandle, large ranches in Brazil and Argentina, down under in the Australian Outback and in the modern dairy sheds of New Zealand.
ReproScan’s goal is to provide veterinarians and beef and dairy operations with easy to use, durable and affordable ultrasound equipment that will improve the reproductive efficiency of the cattle operations and improve the safety of veterinarians and technicians using our scanning equipment.
