The Dairy Cattle Reproduction Council (DCRC) invites you to nominate dairies with outstanding reproduction for the 2012 DCRC Reproduction Awards. Nominations are due April 1, and must be completed online.

The awards honor dairy producers and their operations for accomplishing reproductive efficiency with well-implemented management procedures. Producers must be nominated by professionals who serve the dairy industry, such as veterinarians, genetic and pharmaceutical company representatives, DHIA field personnel or extension specialists.  

Applications will be reviewed by a panel of judges and the top nominees will be asked to provide additional information about their operations. This information will allow judges to select Platinum, Gold, Silver and Honorable Mention winners, who will be honored at the 2012 DCRC annual meeting in Sacramento, California.
