Upcoming AABP Webinars

Utilizing spreadsheets and calculators to enhance your beef cow-calf practice

Speaker: Dr. Mark Hilton

Tuesday, January 19, 2021  2:00 PM -  3:00 PM CST


Add to Calendar 1/19/2021 2:00 PM 1/19/2021 3:00 PM America/Chicago Utilizing spreadsheets and calculators to enhance your beef cow-calf practice Problem: You want to do more than call cows bred and open for your beef clients. You want to perform “value-added” pregnancy examinations. Solution: We built a spreadsheet program that is simple to use and can record cow BCS, weight and expected calving dates. A graph is generated to show expected calving distribution. Problem: You know that your clients could save ~10% of their hay by feeding their cows Rumensin during the winter, but you do not know how to show them the value. Solution: We designed a spreadsheet calculator that with a very few inputs shows the value to feeding Rumensin on a per cow and a herd basis. Hint: Sometimes the ROI is over 500%! Problem: You have herds that either have a much longer calving season than they would like, or you have herds that “sometimes” miss performing procedures like BSE’s or vaccinating calves on time. Solution: You can use our Beef Herd Management Calendar where you answer 5 simple questions, and an entire yearly calendar is generated for the herd owner. If the herd calves year-around and wants to have 2 distinct 60-day calving seasons, this can be accomplished in only 14 months after you begin using the calendar.

The disconnect between automatic systems identifying possible sick animals and our ability to diagnose the problem

Speaker: Aurora Villarroel

Tuesday, March 16, 2021  2:00 PM -  3:00 PM CST


Add to Calendar 3/16/2021 2:00 PM 3/16/2021 3:00 PM America/Chicago The disconnect between automatic systems identifying possible sick animals and our ability to diagnose the problem This 1-hour interactive webinar will be provided at no charge to AABP members utilizing Zoom. The objective of the webinar presentation is to help clinical veterinarians learn how to interpret information provided by automated systems to flag animals. The instructor has extensive experience reviewing data from automatic systems for monitoring and detecting disease, reproduction parameters, milk component and SCC data, and production efficiencies. Dr. Villarroel will share data and charts from herds to walk attendees through the process of evaluating the data in detecting sick cows and identify the challenges and opportunities for veterinarians to work with clients using automatic systems.

What can we learn from activist videos?

Speaker: Dr. Brandon Treichler

Tuesday, March 23, 2021  2:00 PM -  3:00 PM CST


Add to Calendar 3/23/2021 2:00 PM 3/23/2021 3:00 PM America/Chicago What can we learn from activist videos? Veterinarians and producers feel threatened by animal activist undercover videos that have been released. In many circumstances, these videos are edited to portray a damaging view of the dairy industry. In some cases, employees have been encouraged by undercover activists to record situations of mistreatment or mishandling. All of us can learn from these videos. We can start by evaluating the farms we serve, identify areas to improve animal care and well-being, and discuss mitigating risk of an undercover video that would portray the operation inappropriately. Veterinarians can assist producers in improving animal care, handling and treatment and we can use activist videos to guide our conversation to protect our clients and the animals in their care.
