Texas A&M University's beef cattle workshop to be held in Texas, US, in end-August
The Beef Reproduction Task Force and Texas A&M University will host the 2022 Applied Reproductive Strategies in Beef Cattle Workshop in San Antonio, Texas, the United States, on August 30-31.
The meeting has a long history of providing the latest information on the application of reproductive technologies and includes a range of topics related to cow herd reproduction such as nutritional interactions, herd health, management and male fertility.
"The meeting is for producers, veterinarians and AI (artificial insemination) technicians, as well as anyone interested in beef cattle reproduction," said Sandy Johnson, Kansas State University extension beef specialist and reproductive physiologist.
The Beef Reproduction Task Force has invited graduate students to attend and share posters reporting current findings focused on improving reproductive performance of beef heifers, cows and bulls.
Nominations are still being accepted through July 15 for the Service to Industry Award that recognises outstanding contributions by those working in the AI industry towards the application or increased use of AI and estrous synchronization by beef producers.
This year, one award will be for an outstanding veterinary practice and a second category will be for an AI service technician of a company, or someone working independently with producers to implement AI programmes.
The Beef Reproduction Task Force is a multi-state extension group made up of specialists from Kansas State University, University of Florida, University of Georgia, University of Idaho, Iowa State University, Texas A&M University, Virginia Tech University and University of Wyoming.
