Making it Happen: Successful Breeding

October 1, 2016 @8:00 am-4:00 pm


There’s no question that genetics plays a large role in breeding, but exactly how, and what else influences a successful litter? Drs. Jerold Bell and William Schultz will discuss the science of genetics and breeding from a number of angles, while Drs. Cailin Heinze and Jean Mukherjee explore additional important factors that play into the health of a litter. Six CVME credits will be awarded for this daylong conference—to be held in conjunction with the Theriogenology Foundation—you won’t want to miss.
