For the third year, the Dairy Cattle Reproduction Council (DCRC) is once again looking to recognize dairy producers through their Reproduction Award Program for accomplishing reproductive efficiency with well-implemented management procedures.

Different from the two previous years, the 2011 National Reproduction Award Program will separate Holstein and non-Holstein herds and honor producers in both categories. This change to the program is aimed at recognizing the accomplishments of all dairies, keeping in mind breed fertility differences.

Dairy operations must be nominated by professionals who serve the dairy industry, such as veterinarians, genetic and pharmaceutical company representatives, DHIA field personnel or Extension specialists. This year nominations can only be submitted through the online form available at the link below, and must be completed by May 1.

Judges will review applications and select the top nominees, who will be asked to provide additional information about their operation. This information will help the judges select Platinum, Gold, Silver and Honorable Mention winners. Award recipients will be honored at the 2011 DCRC annual meeting in Kansas City, Mo.
