Top best answers to the question «What is utrecht technique»
- The Utrecht technique that I learned about 30 years ago from Bob Mortimer at Colorado State University is the easiest way to deliver a calf, in my opinion. It’s easy on the human, the cow and the calf. The keys to success are: Start with the cow standing, ideally in a chute and do a vaginal exam.
the “half-hitch” method — also known as the Utrecht method — to lay the cow down (see Figure 1). The half-hitch method is best accomplished with two people, as it is safer when passing the rope beneath the cow.
