Pregnancy Losses in Livestock
Methods are available to maximize fertilization success in livestock, but little information exists detailing ways to minimize embryonic and early fetal losses. This symposium will outline the etiology and severity of pregnancy losses in cattle and pigs and explore why these losses occur.
Invited Speakers and Titles:
- Dr. Vitor R.G. Mercadante, Virginia Tech University – Economic Consequences of Pregnancy Loss in Beef Cattle
- Dr. Ky G. Pohler, Texas A&M University – The Timing of Pregnancy Losses in Beef Cattle
