Dairy Cattle Summer Research Update

  • Tuesday, July 16, 2019, 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

After the day's work is done ...

Come hear about two new research trials conducted by Julio Giordano's Lab.


Strategies for improving dairy cattle reproductive performance and economics: The latest research on reproductive management programs for second and greater services for dairy cows will be covered. Programs that prioritize insemination of cows in heat or maximize fertility through timed AI will be discussed. Examples of strategies for on-farm implementation and performance implications will be provided.

Using automated sensors for improving dairy cattle health monitoring and management: The latest concepts and research on the use and value of health monitoring and management using automated sensors (e.g., rumination, activity, milk weights monitors) will be covered. Pros and cons of different technologies and their potential implementation for health management will be discussed. We will also cover the economics of incorporating technologies into farm management.
