Webinar: Getting the most from the second half of the breeding season

Join XLVets live on Thursday, June 10th at 8 PM for a free webinar delivered by veterinary experts for dairy farmers.

Experts will focus on dairy fertility and how you can get the most from the second half of this breeding season.

XLVets Ireland, in conjunction with XLVets Skillnet and MSD Animal Health Intelligence, are bringing the event to farmers.

Speakers on the evening will include:

  • Donal Lynch, Slieve Bloom Veterinary, Offaly;
  • Kevin O Sullivan, Glasslyn Veterinary, Cork;
  • Doreen Corridan, Munster Bovine;
  • Michelle Crowley, Territory Manager MSD Animal Health Intelligence.


This webinar will focus on the second half of the dairy breeding season, covering the three main groups on a farm: cows, replacement heifers and 2021-born heifer calves.

A spokesperson said: “We will have a mix of farm pre-recorded content, which will be streamed on the evening.”

“Some of the content we will cover includes; heat detection aids, vasectomised and stock bulls, early pregnancy scanning, synchronisation, dealing with late calvers, growth rates, grass allocation, and we will look at some of the common issues seen this year.” ​


Organisers have invited all farmers to attend and you are required to register in advance. Visit here to sign up, with a meeting link to follow, on Wednesday, June 9th.
