2016 ARSBC Workshop set for
Sept. 7-8 in Des Moines, IA
The premiere national event in beef cattle reproductive management will be hosted for the first time ever in Iowa later this year, and you’re invited to make plans now to attend. The 2016 Applied Reproductive Strategies in Beef Cattle (ARSBC) Workshop will include information for cow-calf producers, bovine veterinarians, industry representatives, extension personnel and students.
The Sept. 7-8 event is brought to you by Iowa State University, Iowa Beef Center and the Beef Reproduction Task Force, and will highlight the latest information on reproductive technologies in beef cattle.
Scientists and veterinarians from 13 states will help attendees hone their reproductive skills on best management practices in handling hormones and frozen genetics, nutrition, sexed semen, embryo transfer, in vitro fertilization, reproductive health, genetics, fetal programming and pregnancy detection, among others.
Up to 15 continuing education units for veterinarians in Iowa and adjoining states, as well as professional animal scientists, have been approved for this year’s meeting.
The meeting will also feature a poster session, during which graduate students enrolled in animal science or veterinary programs will share research. (Students interested can click here for more information.)
Registration is available for $250, with $100 discount available to students. Click here to go to the event registration page provided by ISU.
The Beef Reproduction Task Force is a multi-state extension activity in cooperation with the North Central Agricultural and Natural Resources Program Leaders Committee and the Cooperative State Research, Education and Extension Service.
Key goals of the Beef Reproduction Task Force include promoting widespread adoption of reproductive technologies among cow-calf producers and educating the beef industry on management considerations to increase the likelihood of successful breeding of animals through artificial insemination.
