The Dairy Cattle Reproduction Council is taking nominations for its 2014 Reproduction Awards program, which recognizes outstanding dairy operations for reproductive efficiency and well-implemented management procedures.
“Dairy producers continue to make significant advancements in their reproductive programs through new technology, teamwork and outstanding herd management,” says DCRC Awards Coordinator Dr. Andrew Skidmore. “We encourage industry professionals to nominate herds with high-caliber reproductive programs for the 2014 awards.”
Dairy operations must be nominated by professionals who serve the dairy industry, such as veterinarians, genetic and pharmaceutical company representatives, DHIA field personnel or Extension specialists. Nomination forms must be completed online and are due by April 15.
Judges will review applications and select the top herds, who will be asked to provide additional information about their operation. Award recipients will be honored at the 2014 DCRC Annual Meeting in Salt Lake City later this fall.
