Alltech hosts interactive breeding seminars

Alltech, KEENAN and InTouch, Alltech’s on-farm nutrition support service, will host four interactive breeding seminars in four locations around the country this spring.

The four InTouch Breeding Seminars will begin on Thursday, April 4, and end on Thursday, April 17. These seminars will wrap up the InTouch 150-day plan, “Focus for 150,” which concentrates on the 50 days before and the 100 days after calving, the most critical time of year for farmers to get their herd in the best health.

Following the highly successful “Focus for 150” dry cow workshops last winter, the breeding seminars will take farmers through the final phase of the 150-day plan to prepare their herd to get back in calf. Speakers at the InTouch Breeding Seminars will include:

Finbar Mulligan, associate professor, School of Veterinary Medicine, University College Dublin – Key principles for successful breeding.

Martin Kavanagh, Cow Solutions – Farmer panel discussion: How farmers are achieving results on their farms.

InTouch feeding specialist, Alltech – The InTouch 150-day plan focuses on the most critical times of year to get your herd in the best health.

Regional manager, Alltech – Beat the drop: A discussion surrounding a drop in milk solids as we move through the season.

Each InTouch Breeding Seminar will feature a farmer panel discussion chaired by Martin Kavanagh.
