Blaze N’ Star | Episode 1: The Importance of Reproduction
This video was designed to introduce the importance of reproduction in dairy cattle. Cows that do not become pregnant within the first 200 days in milk have a greater chance of either being replaced or having reduced lifetime milk production. Lactating dairy cows have reduced chances for pregnancy compared to when they were virgin heifers. Fertility programs are available for dairy cows to increase chances of pregnancy to first artificial insemination thus increasing the chances of remaining in the herd.
