The overarching goal of the reproductive management program on the dairy is to manage cows to calve once per year to maximize economic efficiency. Reproductive management goes beyond simply getting cows bred. A good reproductive management program integrates good overall animal management, use of technical skill, and sound mating decisions. Most dairy producers utilize artificial insemination to take advantage of reduced safety risk and expense associated with managing a bull and virtually limitless restrictions with regard to genetic selection and improvement. While the benefits of using artificial insemination often far outweigh its drawbacks, its use adds both a layer of complexity and flexibility to dairy production. Here you will find resources related to all aspects of dairy breeding and reproduction to help guide producers on their journey to building and maintaining a successful program for their operation.
