Sixteen producers from several provinces gained applicable knowledge on reproductive strategies at the Alta Dairy Manager School held in Ottawa, ON December 5-7, 2018.

In this intense, 2.5-day course, participants learned through a mix of classroom sessions and on-farm training. They studied the newest, research-based ideas in reproduction in a small class setting. This set-up allowed everyone to ask the real questions that relate to their own farm’s current situations and future goals. Participants left the training with real ideas they could implement on their farms to improve their herd reproduction and profitability.

Dairy Manager School presenters included Dr. Luís Mendonça, Dr. Glaucio Lopes and Chris Rember.
