Factors Impacting Fertility from Genomics to Aspirin

Farm Ready Research Lyssa:  A successful transition period sets up a dairy cow for a stress free lactation and better conception rates.  This talk will go over a few things farmers can think about to set their dry cows up for a great lactation.  Francisco:  The advent of genomics in the last 15 years has revolutionized dairy cattle breeding, enabling more rapid genetic progress. Genomics facilitates the selection of novel traits that are important but too difficult or expensive to measure on the entire population. This could allow the selection of new fertility traits that more closely describe cows’ reproductive physiology and ultimately benefit the improvement of fertility in dairy cows. Heather: Does Aspirin, an nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug benefit a cow when given around calving?  This presentation will seek to answer this question. Registration Required: Yes.

Honing our Measures of Efficiency

Farm Ready Research Francisco- Feed accounts for half the costs on most dairy farms. Cows with greater feed efficiency, cows that need less feed for each pound of milk produced, are likely to be more profitable. Cows that are more efficient need less land, create less waste and methane per pound of milk produced. Feed Efficiency is a heritable trait now measured as Residual Feed Intake  (RFI) and Feed Saved.  How can you incorporate these traits to create a more efficient profitable herd? Alison Pfau and Matt Lippert- How silos are managed, feed mixed, management of the manger, ration formulation and cow comfort can all impact feed loss and efficiency.  We have come a long way from just considering bulk tank milk, or even pounds of milk solids produced to evaluate efficiency.  As margins tighten, evaluating conversion of feed into milk and what can be done to improve it is important.
