New Tools for Dairy Reproduction Programs
April 22, 12-1 p.m. CCST
Dr. Paul Fricke, University of Wisconsin-Madison
Dr. Fricke will cover two areas of reproductive research that have investigated new tools for reproduction and conclude each with an economic analysis of the data. The first new tool will be the use of accelerometer systems combined with various levels of synchronization for submitting cows for first AI service. The second tool will be new methods for nonpregnancy diagnosis coupled with strategies for resynchronization of ovulation.
