The latest technologies and techniques in beef cattle reproduction will take center stage at UC Davis in August at the 2015 Applied Reproductive Strategies in Beef Cattle Symposium.

Cattle producers, veterinarians, faculty, Cooperative Extension specialists, students, and more are welcome at the national event, which will be held August 17 and 18 at the UC Davis Conference Center.

“Speakers from multiple states will outline approaches to improve the efficiency and success of beef cattle reproduction,” said Alison Van Eenennaam, a UC Cooperative Extension specialist in the UC Davis Department of Animal Science, which is hosting the annual event. It’s the first time the symposium has been held in California.

Participants will explore key topics in beef cattle reproduction, including physiology, genetics, management, marketing, and strategies for coping with drought.

“Dr. Eric Scholljegerdes from New Mexico State University will deliver a timely talk entitled, ‘Drought: Devastating natural event or a wake-up call for better cattle management,’ ” Van Eenennaam said.

Heifer development will also be addressed, along with the role maternal nutrition plays in fetal development. For a full list of speakers and topics, visit this link.

American Registry of Professional Animal Scientists and Veterinary Medicine continuing education credits are approved for the meeting. The registration fee of $250 includes one dinner and two lunches. Students can attend for $100. Register and learn more here.
