1. Target Equine Breeding System

TARGET Equine Progesterone Kits are the easy to use, dependable progesterone test kits that veterinarians trust. Target can give you the answers you need.

Target Equine Breeding System…
Improve Breeding Performance

Measuring progesterone levels is a more reliable method on which to base a breeding schedule than the estrual behavioral patterns of the mare (such as response to teasing). Progesterone levels accurately reflect the different stages of the mare's cycle and allow planning the most effective reproductive program.

TARGET Equine Progesterone Kits are the easy to use, dependable progesterone test kits that veterinarians trust. Target can give you the answers you need.

"We run a TARGET test on every mare that comes into our clinic for a reproductive exam. TARGET is a very accurate and valuable breeding tool which we have been using for years."…….

Dr. Walter Threlfall, Professor of Equine Medicine, College of Veterinary Medicine, Ohio State University

PROGESTERONE TESTING:
What? Why? Where?

WHAT are the Results?

WHY Did I Get This Result?

WHERE is the Mare in the Estrous Cycle?

Low Progesterone
(0 – 1 ng/ml)
Bright Blue

This result tells you that there is no functional corpus present and that there is no progesterone being produced

The mare is either in estrus or still in winter estrus (ovarian shutdown) depending on the season. If developing follicles are present, the mare may be entering the transitional phase.

Medium Progesterone
2 – 4 ng/ml
Light Blue

This result indicates that the progesterone level is starting to rise or to fall.

With this result, more than one test is required to determine if the progesterone is rising or falling. Test again in 2 days.

High Progesterone
= 5 ng/ml
White

This result indicates a high progesterone level. The mare has ovulated.

The mare has ovulated and is in a non-fertile period. If the mare has been bred, this result obtained 21-23 days breeding is indicative of pregnancy.


USING TARGET WITH PROSTAGLANDIN

A TARGET test can be used to decide when to use prostaglandin and to determine whether a second injection is required.

USING TARGET WITH REGU-MATE®

A TARGET test can determine if Regu-Mate is necessary to maintain pregnancy, or to determine if it can be discontinued.

2. Immuno-Chek G


Immunoglobulin G is an essential antibody that ensures protection against infectious disease. Foals are born with no immunoglobulins (IgG) and must receive adequate antibodies from the mare's colostrum. The timing for this is critical. Transfer is limited because the foal eventually loses the ability to absorb the antibodies.



Immuno-Chek G can quickly identify healthy and immunodeficient foals that require supplementation.

Save20

Up to 20% of newborn foals experience a partial or total failure of passive transfer of IgG. These animals are at high risk of serious illness or death.

An IgG test can identify if a failure of passive transfer has occurred or not. The IgG levels of all foals should be routinely measured when they are about 12 hours old.

Immuno-Chek G can quickly identify healthy and immunodeficient foals that require supplementation.
