Increased Reports of Hydrops Pregnancies: Seeking Active Cases
The Nebraska Bovine Congenital Defects program recently recognized an increased number of reports of hydrops pregnancies in a line of Simmental cows. Reports involve daughters and granddaughters of the bull WS All Aboard B80, ASA #2852207, and pregnancies created by embryo transfers of daughters.
An informational webinar is available with Drs. David Steffen and Jessica Petersen from the Nebraska Bovine Congenital Defects program and the ASA staff will discuss what the research team has seen to date with Hydrops pregnancies, the current hypothesis for inheritance, and the next steps toward finding solutions. There will also be time for Q&A. To watch the webinar, click here.
