Licking County Extension is offering a meeting on cattle reproductive technologies designed to help all levels of producers, including the person who is interested in using artificial insemination for the first time, to the person that has used embryo transfer for years. Reproductive technology continues to progress and a lot has changed in the last five years.

We will discuss the topics of estrus synchronization, timed breeding, artificial insemination, sexed semen, embryo transfer, and in vitro fertilization. Are you using the available procedures to improve your management and your herd genetics? Learn about the current status and what the future holds. Get answers to your questions such as: What are the costs? What are realistic expectations? How do I take the next step?

This class is being offered free beginning at 7 p.m. on January 23 in the Licking Valley High School Ag Building at 100 Hainesview Drive, Newark Ohio, located just to the right of the High School. Presenters include Mel Dejarnette, Vice President of Processing and Research for Select Sires Inc., and Dr. Rob Stout, DVM. Owner of Legends Lane Reproductive Services, Alexandria, OH.
