Breed/Reproduction Beef Cattle Reproduction Home Study Course

Beef cattle reproductive management for producers with either large or small herds is the subject of a home study course the University of Minnesota Extension Service is offering this winter. The course is entitled "Reproductive Management," and includes six lessons covering the basics of reproduction for beef cattle producers.

The course is designed to provide producers with the information necessary to make decisions that will improve profitability. Lesson topics include health management for reproduction, nutrition effects on reproduction, expected progeny differences (EPDs) and genetics for improved reproduction, heifer development, synchronization, and raising versus buying replacements. An added bonus will be an appendix listing advanced reproductive technology.

Registrations received by the Jan. 27 deadline will guarantee course enrollment. Class lessons will be mailed to participants every 6-10 days beginning in February. The course registration fee is $40. For more information, contact the Pipestone County Extension Office at 800/967-2705 or 507/825-6715. There is also a registration form on the Internet at <A HREF="http://www.extension.umn.edu/county/pipestone/" TARGET="_blank">www.extension.umn.edu/county/pipestone/</A>. The form is under the "Home Study Course" heading.
