Get the Most From Your Herd

Lifetime dairy



Practical ways to boost dairy cow fertility will be the focus of Mole Valley Farmers’ Lifetime Dairy Conference:

Bath and West Showground, Shepton Mallet on 6th December or
Dumfries House, Cumnock 4th December.

Entitled: “Fertility: Challenges and Latest Solutions,” the conference will see leading dairy experts from the UK and Europe take to the stage to share the latest thinking in fertility management.

With fertility forming the linchpin to the success of any dairy business, the event’s themes marry closely with Mole Valley Farmers’ Lifetime Dairy initiative, which is aimed at maximising the long-term performance of the dairy herd.

Dr John Cook, Global Technical Consultant for World Wide Sires, will offer a global perspective on fertility management and discuss the relative importance of genetics, management and nutrition in boosting fertility.

Dr Jo Leroy from The University of Antwerp in Belgium, will then share the latest developments in nutrition and fertility in his talk entitled “A New Pathway to Improved Fertility”. He will be offering up tips for fertility management during lactation.

Recent fertility benchmark figures from the UK, will then be brought under the spotlight by Dairy Veterinary Consultant, Dr Tom Chamberlain, who will be sharing fertility targets.

Arnout Dekker, Marketing Manager Europe for Phibro Animal Health, will then highlight the impact of stress on the immune system and fertility and discuss the role of feeding the speciality feed supplement, OmniGen-AF®.

It will then be the turn of Dr Robin Hawkey, Technical Sales Manager for Mole Valley Farmers, who will take the opportunity to talk about ration considerations this winter and the importance of getting ration balance right to optimise fertility.
