Revolutionary IVF Process to be Showcased at Cattlemen’s College in San Antonio Feb. 5

Sun, 10 Nov 2019 19:08:31 CST

Revolutionary IVF Process to be Showcased at Cattlemen’s College in San Antonio Feb. 5 A live look at innovative in vitro fertilization (IVF) technology will be on display when the 27th Cattlemen’s College is held in San Antonio, Texas, Feb. 4-5, immediately prior to the 2020 Cattle Industry Convention & NCBA Trade Show. Cattlemen’s College is conducted by the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association producer education team and sponsored by Zoetis.

Called “Taking the Mystery Out of IVF,” the session will use ultrasound-assisted technology to collect eggs from a cow without the use of ovary stimulating hormones. The presentation will be conducted by Michael Bishop, Ph.D., director of strategy for Vytelle, and Bruno Sanches, DVM, Vytelle chief operating officer.

“With Cattlemen’s College we’re always in search of innovative, interactive ways of providing education that’s both captivating and helpful to cattle producers,” said Josh White, NCBA executive director of producer education. “This session really fits that bill, as it takes a process that’s three decades old and modernizes it to give cattlemen and women a chance to see beef cattle reproduction in a new light.”

The session is just one of 18 that will be offered during the College, in six flights. The topics cover Building and Protecting Your Business, Let’s Talk Bulls, Maintaining a Healthy Herd, Trends in Genetic Selection, Here’s the Beef, and Practical Nutrition Management. Sessions are taught by experts in their respective cattle and beef fields.

Cattlemen’s College kicks off the “Deep in the Heart” Cattle Industry Convention & NCBA Trade Show Feb. 5-7, featuring many of the annual elements cattle producers have come to love and some new and unique ones they have come to expect – including other educational opportunities on the NCBA Trade Show floor. There will be a Learning Lounge with “lightning sessions” where attendees can gather educational tips, a Stockmanship and Stewardship demonstration arena and surprising new events, such as a Drone Drive, Chutes & Scales Showdown and Table Talks, where producers can interact with others in roundtable discussions.

In addition, meetings of NCBA, the Cattlemen’s Beef Promotion and Research Board, American National CattleWomen, CattleFax and the National Cattlemen’s Foundation will be held, and there will be motivational speakers, music and entertainment, fellowship, CattleFax Outlook presentation, industry awards, an NCBA Invitational PBR Bull Riding event and much more.

Registration for both the Cattlemen’s College and 2020 Cattle Industry Convention & NCBA Trade Show is now open, and prices will go up in December, so make your preparations soon. Information about registration and the programs can be found at https://convention.ncba.org
