Evaluation of the Accuracy of Bovipreg® kit for early pregnancy diagnosis in indigenous Arsi cattle was done on some selected cattle at AdamiTulu Agricultural Research Center. The result indicates that the overall accuracy of Bovipreg® kit in diagnosing pregnancy were 68.6%. There was a significant difference in the accuracy of Bovipreg test between the milk and blood samples used for diagnosing pregnancy. The overall accuracy of the Bovipreg® were 89.3% and 57.1% by using milk and blood samples respectively. The result indicated that there was no statistically significant difference between the collection dates on the accuracy of Bovipreg® kit. Parity of the animals has no effect on the accuracy of Bovipreg® result. Bovipreg® is one of the technology which allows early detection of pregnancy it has to be evaluated and demonstrated to dairy producers and different stakeholders in the dairy sector.
