If you’re reading this page, you probably have some interest in dairy cows, dairy science or even the dairy industry. This puts you in good company – there are hundreds of us out there! No matter who you are or how you got here, the aim of this website is to get to know each other better, learn more about dairy reproduction, and hopefully, have fun along the way.
My name is Ee Cheng Ooi and I’m a new graduate with the Department of Economic Development (DEDJTR) dairy extension team. My passion is dairy fertility – to be more precise, it’s about “getting more cows, more pregnant”.
As part of my role, I get to talk to a lot of farmers and meet with plenty of researchers. It’s a huge job trying to keep up with all the new ideas and scientific data out there – and it’s what I do full-time! So how are dairy farmers supposed to stay on top of it all?
Up until now, this seemed like a tricky problem. We’re here to solve all of that with the Dairy Fertility Investigator. To make your job easier, this blog will help you to do two things:
1. Keep track of new research on dairy fertility; and
2. Alert you to other farmers’ new ideas and experiences.
We’re hoping that you might like to contribute comments, but if you just want to read the bi-monthly updates, you can subscribe to the blog and get posts sent straight to your inbox.
We’re also taking suggestions, questions and ideas – email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. And, of course, come over and have a chat if you see me hanging around on farm – it’s the best part of my job.
