Beef cattle reproduction symposium scheduled

September 4, 2008

New methods and technologies to control and improve reproductive success in beef cattle is the focus of the "Robert Taylor Memorial Symposium: Applied Reproductive Strategies in Beef Cattle" scheduled for Dec. 2 – 3, 2008 at the Hilton Hotel in Fort Collins, Colo.         

"This meeting is for anyone interested in beef cattle reproduction, including producers, veterinarians, AI (artificial insemination) technicians and Extension specialists,” says Sandy Johnson, animal science specialist with Kansas State University Research and Extension and one of the conference coordinators.

The workshops are designed to improve the understanding of the physiological processes of the estrous cycle, currently available procedures to synchronize estrus and ovulation and the proper application of these systems. They will also focus on improving participants' understanding of methods to assess male fertility and how it affects the success of AI programs.
