Disease prevalence of genital organs in Holstein-Friesian cows with various forms and currents is 51.3%. Which 4.5% are acute and 55.6% are chronic forms of endometritis. In red steppe breed cows found 53.8% of pathologies. From which acute fibrinous endometritis is 39.2% and chronic catarrhal endometritis 35.7%. These pathologies diagnosing with clinical, instrumental and biophysical methods, 10-30 days after calving, efficiency of the Metrastatum device is 8.7% - 40% higher than when using the ultrasound and rectal method of research, and by 31- 60, 61 and more days after calving, effectiveness of the ultrasound method was 7.1% -14% higher compared of instrumental method.
