Management

Reproductive management of dairy animal is crucial to whole-farm profitability as it enables milk sales, provides replacement animals, and is a factor in culling decisions. The dairy industry has responded to challenges in managing dairy animal reproduction with innovative technologies and reproductive management programs that enable producers to synchronize ovulation, thereby lessening or eliminating the need for visual heat detection, or to make heat detection more efficient through the use of aids or automated computer-based record keeping systems.
