Webinar: Fertility through nutrition in dairy cows

Dairy Global and Phileo by Lesaffre invite you to pre-register for a new webinar on "Fertility through nutrition in dairy cows". The webinar will be aired live on Monday 6 July at 14.00 hours Central European time. Register for free by clicking the button below.

Reproductive performance is critical to the profitability and sustainability of dairy farms. When dairy cow reproduction is optimized it will increase the amount of milk sold over the cows’ lifetime as well as increasing cow longevity and genetic potential. Thus, fertility is a critically important part of milk production.

This webinar will be hosted by Dairy Global editor, Zana van Dijk.



Speakers:

Albert de Vries

Dr. Albert De Vries, PhD, Professor in the Department of Animal Sciences, University of Florida, USA 

Presentation: Importance of reproduction for profitability and productive lifespan of dairy cattle.

  • Failure to get pregnant is a major cause of premature culling
  • Good reproduction is possible and economically valuable
  • Better reproduction helps to extend productive lifespan of dairy cattle.

Jo Leroy

Dr. Jo Leroy, PhD, Professor of Veterinary Physiology, Pathophysiology and Husbandry, University of Antwerp, Belgium 

Presentation: Negative energy balance in relation to dairy cow fertility: focusing on what really matters in 20 minutes.

  • What factors really play a role when discussing about Negative Energy Balance? Looking beyond the difficult calculations …
  • How does metabolic stress affects fertility? The law of mother nature: “Unhealthy cows cannot reproduce”!
  • Long term effects: the oocyte needs more than 3 months to mature and will remember unhealthy cow conditions many months before!
