Improving 21-day pregnancy rates from 13 percent to 22 percent could result in a value of $188 per cow per year, or $37,600 for a 200-cow dairy herd, according to Victor Cabrera, University of Wisconsin-Madison dairy scientist.

Cabrera discussed the value of improving reproductive efficiency during a recent Repro Money workshop. Cabrera shared his research on the economic gains of improving a herd’s reproductive performance and the tools he has developed to empower dairy producers to estimate their own potential for increased profitability.
