During the webinar, Dr. Paul Fricke with the University of Wisconsin-Madison will cover two areas of reproductive research that have investigated new tools for reproduction. The first new tool will be the use of accelerometer systems combined with various levels of synchronization for submitting cows for first AI service. The second tool will be new methods for nonpregnancy diagnosis coupled with strategies for resynchronization of ovulation. Fricke also will provide an economic analysis of the data.
