The Beef Reproduction Task Force and the National Cattlemen's Beef Association are offering the Applied Reproductive Strategies in Beef Cattle Workshop at the 2010 Cattle Industry Convention in San Antonio Jan. 28-29, 2010.
The workshop is designed to improve understanding and management of the beef cow estrous cycle, recommended estrus synchronization protocols, and other approaches to improving the efficiency of reproduction, according to Sandy Johnson, northwest area livestock specialist with Kansas State University Research and Extension. Johnson is one of the event coordinators.
The workshop will cover strategies to improve herd profitability through enhanced management techniques and nutritional influences on reproductive success and the role of male fertility, Johnson said.
The Beef Reproduction Task Force is a multi-state Extension group comprised of specialists from Kansas State University, University of Missouri, Iowa State University, University of Nebraska, South Dakota State University, University of Florida, University of Illinois and University of Idaho.
