Registration Open for 2019 ARSBC
Tennessee to host beef cattle reproduction workshop in Knoxville
Registration is now open for the 2019 Applied Reproductive Strategies in Beef Cattle symposium. Hosted by the Beef Reproduction Task Force and the University of Tennessee, the ARSBC symposium will be Aug. 20-21 at the Hilton Knoxville in Knoxville, Tennessee.
Considered the premier national event in beef cattle reproductive management, 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, management and male fertility. This year’s conference will feature a variety of topics surrounding beef reproductive health, including synchronization, heifer management and development, genomic selection and more.
Conference attendees will also be invited to attend a special reception and awards ceremony, visit the industry trade show, and interact with the newest technology in reproduction in hands-on lab simulations.
