The Dairy Cattle Reproduction Council (DCRC) has announced the 2016 Reproduction Awards program, which recognizes outstanding dairy operations for reproductive efficiency and well-implemented management procedures. Nominations are now being accepted for the 2016 program.
Dairy operations must be nominated by professionals who serve the dairy industry, such as veterinarians, extension agents, A.I. and pharmaceutical company representatives, plant and co-op field staff, consultants, and others. Nomination forms are due by April 30 and may be completed online or mailed to the following address.
1800 S. Oak St., Suite 100
Champaign, IL 61820
Judges will review applications and select the top herds, who will be asked to provide additional information about their operation. This information will help the judges select Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze winners. Award recipients will be honored at the 2016 DCRC Annual Meeting in Columbus, Ohio, on November 10–11, 2016.
