About the Author
The Dairy Fertility Investigator is a new graduate veterinarian who unexpectedly found herself working as a Dairy Extension Officer for the Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources (DEDJTR). She started this blog to help farmers keep on top of new developments in dairy fertility, and to find out what other farmers are doing to improve their herd reproductive performance.
Although fertility has declined in the Victorian dairy industry over the last two decades, she strongly believes that good performance is still possible – she meets farmers kicking goals and quietly winning all over Victoria. She doesn’t think this happens through sheer luck – but mostly strategic thinking, a bit of knowledge good ideas… and a whole lot of hard work. Not everything in this blog will work for all farms, but the more you know the better prepared you’ll be to improve.
