Reproduction Revisited

Reproduction is the most important factor on a modern dairy farm. Getting dairy cattle rebred in a timely fashion is critical for dairy farm profitability. The Meadowlark Extension District will be hosting two sessions, “Reproduction Revisited,” featuring Dr. Luis Mendonca DVM, KSU Dairy Veterinarian.

These sessions will be offered on June 25, at the Nemaha County Community Building, 1500 Community Drive, Seneca. These interactive discussions will be held at 1 p.m. in Spanish and repeated at 2:30 p.m. in English. Individual reproduction records can by analyzed, by request when you RSVP.

The second session will be Tuesday, June 26. The focus will be on unwanted weeds and brush. Mixie Vance, the Jackson County Noxious Weed Director and Walt Fick, KSU Range Management Specialist, will be the featured presenters.
