Prevention of dystocia is the goal for nearly every beef and dairy herd owner, but a zero-dystocia incidence every year is highly unrealistic. Veterinarians must be skilled not only in assisting clients in preventing dystocias, but also in treating them. Various techniques are suggested for assisting a cow with a dystocia. The Utrecht method is a time-tested technique that reduces the stress on the cow, calf and technician before, during and after the delivery process.
