This study aims to establish the distribution of reproductive problems encountered during the postpartum period in dairy cows and to explore the effects of treatment procedures on reproductive performance. In the study, the ratios of assisted birth, RFM and metritis are found to be 24, 31 and 29%, respectively. Antibiogram tests performed on cows with metritis revealed that 6 cows were hypersensitive to oxytetracycline, 4 cows to enrofloxacine, 2 cows to gentamicine and 1 cow to amoxicillin. From among 45 postpartum cows used in the study, 28 (62.2%) tested positive for pregnancy. About 6 out of 11 cows giving assisted birth (54.5%), 7 out of 14 cows treated for RFM (50%) and 6 out of 13 cows (46%) treated for metritis were found to be pregnant.
