Dr Allessio Valenza
Dr Valenza also spoke at the fertility workshops which took place in January this year, where he emphasized the importance of improving fertility through protocols and the correlation between high fertility and high profit. This can be achieved through the vet understanding the farmer and how they manage their cows, which assists in having the correct protocol in place to ensure a better return on investment.
For Dr Valenza, he believes compliance is key and that protocol is very valuable to vets in order to implement it correctly in farms and ensuring protocol is applied at the correct time. According to Dr Valenza, misapplication and application at the incorrect time is wasting time as the cow will not be put in calf. The key message Dr Valenza had was that there was room for improvement and the importance of using the correct tools for fertility protocol in order to acheive targets.
