DCRC award nominations are due April 1
HARTLAND, Wis. -- Nominations are now welcome for the Dairy Cattle Reproduction Council (DCRC) Reproduction Awards program, which recognizes outstanding dairy operations for reproductive efficiency and well-implemented management procedures. More than 50 dairy operations have been recognized for reproductive excellence since the program began five years ago.
Dairy operations must be nominated by professionals who serve the dairy industry, such as veterinarians, genetic and pharmaceutical company representatives, DHIA field personnel or Extension specialists. Nomination forms must be completed online and are due by April 1.
Judges will review applications and select the top herds, who will be asked to provide additional information about their operation. This information will help the judges select Platinum, Gold, Silver and Honorable Mention winners. Award recipients will be honored at the 2013 DCRC annual meeting in Indianapolis on November 7-8.
