The BSAS  held a scientific meeting at Roslin Institute 23rd-24th May to debate practices implicit in large scale livestock enterprises. It was a pleasure to hear how the eBolus is being used in experiments and to report how the farmBolus can be used to confirm times of calving. 

It is pleasant to hear that something we have worked on for 10 years now is beginning to find a role in dairy cow husbandry.
