Welcome to a webbinar on dairy production where replacement strategies and effects on both profitability and the environmental footprint of dairy production will be discussed.
Sustainable strategies for dairy cow replacements
13.00-14.00 (in English)
Professor Albert de Vries, University of Florida
How and when cows are replaced with heifers has major effects on both profitability and the environmental footprint of dairy production. In this presentation, Alberts De Vries will focus on the trade-off between productive lifespan, genetic improvement, environmental footprint, and profitability. He will also present recent scientific work on ranking cows for replacement so that better informed replacement decisions can be made on the farm and also share early results of practical implementation of these rankings on farm. In the second part of his presentation he will discuss how increased reproductive efficiency may affect culling and replacement rates.
