DCRC’s July 11 Webinar Addresses Dairy Cattle Monitoring Technologies

Register for the Dairy Cattle Reproduction Council’s (DCRC) next webinar – Use of monitoring technologies to improve reproductive performance and health in U.S. dairies – set for July 11, starting at 12 p.m. Pacific Time. Glaucio Lopes, Merck Animal Health associate director, scientific sales affairs – dairy monitoring, will lead the free, one-hour webinar.

During this webinar, attendees will learn how the use of monitoring technologies has helped dairies in the United States improve their reproduction management processes – driving an increase in performance. This increased performance leads to a more profitable and sustainable environment. By pairing university research data with real-life dairy examples, Lopes will provide a solid base for this discussion. Additionally, he will share trial results from Cornell University, University of Florida-Gainesville and University of Wisconsin-Madison that have answered questions related to the inclusion of these technologies in large-scale dairy operations. Going beyond reproductive efficiency, Lopes will describe how the use of these technologies can help dairy producers and their veterinarians make more informed decisions about overall management – leading to improved cow health and productivity.
