Pelvimeter Rice Used to measure the pelvis size of the female to determine which bulls to breed with, potential calving problems, selecting replacement heifers, and determining your breeding stock. In recent years, the Rice Pelvimeter has also been used to determine bulls pelvic area and aids the rancher in determining which bulls and heifers to breed. Comes with instructions for taking measurements, and charts showing the relationship between pelvic size/calf weights to dystocia. The best time to measure pelvic areas in heifers is prior to their first breeding season when heifers are 12 to 14 months of age. Based on research, ratios have been developed that give an estimate as to what size calf a heifer could deliver at two years of age without assistance Pelvic area measurements can also be taken at the time of pregnancy examination and even prior to the time of calving, but the division factors to determine deliverable calf size increase with age.
