FREE ESTRUS SYNCHRONIZATION SEMINAR OPEN TO CATTLE PRODUCERS JAN. 15
Cattle producers interested in learning how estrus synchronization and artificial insemination (ESAI) technologies could add value and improve profitability for their farm are invited to attend a free seminar Jan. 15 at the Wiregrass Research and Extension Center in Headland.
Sponsored by the Alabama Cooperative Extension System (ACES), the Estrus Synchronization and Fixed Time Artificial Insemination Seminar is scheduled from 8 a.m. until 11 a.m. Registration opens at 7:30 a.m., and all participants are encouraged to register by Jan. 14.
According to Regional Extension Agent Joshua Elmore, ESAI enables cattle producers to use genetics superior to available natural service sires. Seminar attendees will view chute side demonstrations and hear lectures that explain the biology of the estrous cycle, products used to control the expression of estrus and current methods to synchronize a fertile estrus.
Attendees will also be exposed to artificial insemination for their herd, bovine anatomy and herd health, as well as other tools for estrus synchronization.
