About Breeding 2023

Your Breeding 2023 host, Ivan Yates, will be joined by Ireland and the world's best breeding and dairy industry minds to get to the bottom of the most significant factors affecting the important decisions for the breeding season of 2023.

How will reducing your GHG emission affect your breeding choices? Is now the time to get the most out of sexed semen? What Nutritional factors need to be considered for the transitional cow? What is the right heat detection tool for your farm and herd? We answer all these questions and more! Join us and ask your questions on January the 17th to be prepared for what could be the most critical breeding season of the last 20 years.
