“Research reveals new optimizations for GnRH in reproductive protocols” is the featured topic for the July 26 Dairy Cattle Reproduction Council (DCRC) webinar. The free webinar starts at 2 p.m. Central time (U.S./Canada). John Lee, managing veterinarian, Zoetis, and JP Martins, University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Veterinary Medicine professor, will serve as the instructors for this one-hour webinar.
The DCRC webinar is built on the premise that moving the needle on reproduction rates ties directly to herd profitability. New university research shows that a flexible dose of gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH) can improve pregnancy rates and return on investment. Discover which GnRH product is labeled for a flexible dosage and when that dosage can be used in a synchronization program to optimize results.
Lee has considerable experience in the dairy industry. He completed his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree at Oregon State University in 1986 before relocating to central California where he worked with large dairies. During this time, he focused on helping his dairy clients optimize performance and profitability. In 2007, Lee joined the Zoetis, Dairy Technical Services team, supporting the dairy business in California.
Martins specializes in dairy herd reproductive performance through practical management technologies. His research and interests focus on embryonic and fetal development, pregnancy maintenance and finding solutions for poor reproductive performance in Wisconsin dairy herds.
