An account of the sterility of cows of a region held per year and per cause reveals that (see Table 1):
  1. 1.

    The frequency of sterility is constant. Approximately 15% of the demands for insemination are refused or postponed.

  2. 2.

    The frequency of each cause varies little.

  3. 3.

    Physiological sterility represents 30 to 40% of these causes.

  4. 4.

    Pathological sterility represents 60 to 65% or we may say 1 cow in ten is sterile.

  5. 5.

    The cases of casting are not numerous (less than 1% of the livestock).

  6. 6.

    96.5% of the pathological sterility cases can be treated and 80% cured rapidly.
