Wisconsin University Dairy Reproduction Workshop
Analysis and Implementation: Dairy Reproduction Programs
Wisconsin University Workshop 2015
Sponsored by Ceva
October 13th and 14th, 2015
The workshop is intended for professionals who seek a profound understanding of reproductive physiology and master the tools available to modulate reproductive function in dairy cattle. The program covers the fundamentals of reproductive function and then uses real-case scenarios to illustrate the process of identifying problems and then assembling and implementing reproductive programs to solve them. The workshop also deepens on data analytics and monitoring reproductive performance.
Detailed program available.
Registration open now.
Dr. Cabrera focuses on model-based decision support in dairy cattle and in dairy farm production systems. Dr. Cabrera primary interest is to improve cost-efficiency and profitability along with environmental stewardship in dairy farms by using simulation techniques, artificial intelligence and expert systems. Dr. Cabrera research and Extension programs involve interdisciplinary and participatory approaches towards the creation of user- friendly decision support systems.
Dr. Fricke’s research continues to focus on developing and improving methods for reproductive management of dairy cattle. The goal of Dr. Fricke’s extension program is to maximize reproductive efficiency of dairy cattle by applying knowledge gained through basic scientific research to develop practical management programs and technologies for use in production dairy cattle operations.
Dr. Wiltbank studies the regulation of ovarian function. Basic studies focus on the regulation of hormonal receptors in the corpus luteum and developing ovarian follicle. Applied studies focus on development of methods that allow timed artificial insemination and improve pregnancy rates in dairy cattle.
