Are you interested in dairy reproduction? Well, of course you are – you’re reading this blog after all! You should come to the 2015 InCalf Reproduction Symposium. It’s on the 5th of October this year at the Melbourne Museum, and is ‘designed for all people interested in herd reproduction performance’, including service providers such as vets, artificial breeding advisers, factory field offers, and herd improvement representatives.
In case you need some further convincing, here’s four extremely good reasons why you should attend:
- International expert on sexed semen, Vish Vishwanath, will give us the latest game-changing update on the technology. Genetics expert Donagh Berry from Ireland’s Teagasc will also speak.
- There’s an excellent line up of Australia’s best fertility specialists.
- It features a special guest appearance from John Mulvany, presenting findings on how fertility affects farm financial performance.
- It’s good value at $160 for an entire day’s conference full of Australia-relevant, hard-hitting research.
InCalf symposiums only come around once every two years – I went to the last one in 2013 as a new graduate, and came away with enough fertility information to make my nose bleed. It was also an opportunity to rub shoulders with the most interesting people in dairy fertility, and pick their brains about reproduction and the latest research.

(I’ll also be interviewing a few of the speakers on podcast – look out for this later in October)!
