The Contrasting Functions of Nutrition on Reproduction in Dairy Cows Webinar on October 27th 2022



University of Wisconsin’s Milo Wiltbank to lead DCRC’s October 27 webinar

New Prague, Minn. (October 13, 2022) – Mark your calendar to attend the next Dairy Cattle Reproduction Council (DCRC) webinar, scheduled for Oct. 27, starting at 1 p.m. Central time (USA/Canada). Milo Wiltbank, University of Wisconsin professor of animal and dairy sciences and endocrinology – reproductive physiology, will address “The Contrasting Functions of Nutrition on Reproduction in Dairy Cows.” This one-hour webinar is free.

The DCRC webinar will provide four distinct physiologic models that link nutrition with reproduction in dairy cattle. This presentation will discuss the varied ways that nutrition can alter reproduction in lactating dairy cows. Six different well-studied pathways will be presented with some examples provided that can improve fertility and reduce pregnancy loss in dairy herds. An emphasis will be on attaining the high fertility cycle in your herd.

Wiltbank joined the University of Wisconsin-Madison faculty in 1991 and has done research in reproductive physiology throughout his career. Recently, he was named the Judge John J. Crown Chair in Dairy Physiology and Management. Wiltbank’s research interests include the interactions of nutrition and reproduction, physiological basis for anovular cows and hormonal regulation of the ovary. He is probably best known for development, validation and modification of timed artificial insemination protocols, such as Ovsynch and Double Ovsynch.
