Beef Cattle Reproduction Symposium
Featured Profit-enhancing Opportunities
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Given the magnitude of increased expenses, producers are intently focused on the bottom line while seeking both economic and production efficiencies. In response, the University of Tennessee and the Beef Reproduction Task Force sponsored the 2010 Applied Reproductive Strategies in Beef Cattle Symposium (ARSBC) Aug. 5-6 in Nashville, Tenn.
The symposium featured cutting-edge reproductive strategies. Speakers provided tips for improving herd productivity and decreasing input costs by shortening the calving and breeding seasons, as well as ways to improve overall reproductive management through enhancement of both male and female reproduction. Innovations in estrous synchronization protocols were also a main feature of the symposium.
The symposium was sponsored by the University of Tennessee and the Beef Reproduction Task Force, which is comprised of Extension animal scientists from Kansas State University, University of Nebraska, South Dakota State University, Iowa State University, University Of Idaho, University of Illinois, University of Florida and University of Missouri with support from several other industry sponsors.
