“Maximizing Fertility While Minimizing Timed AI Use” is the featured topic for the next Dairy Cattle Reproduction Council (DCRC) webinar. The webinar starts at 2 p.m. Central time on June 5. Luis Mendonca, who recently joined the Merck Animal Health Ruminant Technical Services team, will serve as the instructor for this one-hour webinar. One Registry of Approved Continuing Education (RACE) credit for this DCRC webinar is granted by the American Association of Veterinary State Boards. This provides veterinarians with a convenient continuing education opportunity. Mendonca, previously with Kansas State University, will discuss key aspects to be considered when striving to maximize dairy cattle fertility in programs that minimize the use of timed artificial insemination (AI). Considering that the transition period has a tremendous impact in reproductive efficiency, Mendonca will share how strategies used in the prepartum and postpartum periods may influence fertility. In addition, when the goal is to minimize the use of timed AI services, programs conducive to induce estrus should be considered. Also, Mendonca will discuss research study findings that rely on strategies focused on inseminating a large proportion of lactating cows in estrus, instead of timed AI. During the webinar, Mendonca will address: – Aspects to consider in programs striving to maximize dairy cattle reproductive efficiency – Factors that influence fertility from the dry period to insemination – Pattern of insemination in programs striving to minimize timed AI protocols for first service – Programs aiming to reduce reinsemination interval by focusing on estrous detection To register for this webinar, go to: http://www.dcrcouncil.org/webinars and follow the prompts. As the webinar time approaches, you will receive an e-mail with information on how to log in to participate. If you are a DCRC member and cannot attend the live program, you may access the webinar at www.dcrcouncil.org (about two weeks after the webinar).
