Dairy cattle fertility advancements and future opportunities will be addressed during the next Dairy Cattle Reproduction Council (DCRC) webinar on Aug 25, at 1 p.m. Central Time. Jeffrey Stevenson, Kansas State University animal sciences and industry professor, will present “Where We’ve Been and Challenges for the Next 10 Years.” Webinar attendees will learn about progress made in improving dairy cattle fertility and research underway in cell biology, nutraceuticals, genomics and computer technology applications to further this progress.
Looking to the future, DCRC will continue to foster dairy cattle fertility enhancements by integrating the disciplines of physiology, management, nutrition, genetics, economics, herd health and production medicine. “Advancements will be based in novel and visionary applications of basic and applied sciences to optimize lactating dairy cows’ reproductive efficiency,” said Stevenson.
