Dairy Cattle Reproduction Council schedules data organization webinar

“Data organization yields positive returns” headlines the Aug. 7 Dairy Cattle Reproduction Council (DCRC) webinar, which starts at 2 p.m. Central time. Mark Kirkpatrick, Zoetis managing veterinarian, Dairy Technical Services, and Iowa State University adjunct faculty, will lead the one-hour webinar.

One Registry of Approved Continuing Education (RACE) credit for this DCRC webinar was granted by the American Association of Veterinary State Boards.

Kirkpatrick will address dairy health condition and protocol recording, which represents the next step in precision dairy management. “This provides information on health incidence prevalence or risk and treatment protocol outcomes,” said Kirkpatrick. “Consistency and accuracy are hallmarks of a highly functional record system. Treatment entries can now be made cow side using cell phones, which will improve accuracy.”

During the webinar, Kirkpatrick will help attendees :

  • Organize disease recording based on nine major economic conditions of dairy cattle
  • Create protocols to record all health interactions with dairy cattle, including beef and no treat
  • decisions
  • Track outcomes of conditions
  • Evaluate protocols
