A webinar on INFERTILITY MANAGEMENT IN LARGE ANIMALS
To the veterinarians and vet students
Total population of cattle in Nepal is 74,58,885 and buffalo is 52,57,591. The population of lactating cattle is 11, 66156 and buffalo is 1635492 (Krishi Diary 2076/77). Difference between the total number of cattle/ buffalo and number of productive cattle/buffalos is quiet high (62,92,729 cattle and 36,22,099 buffalo are unproductive). Infertility plays a major role in the decreased milk production. Farmers are facing significant great economic losses by rearing the unproductive animals. There are major infectious and non-infectious causes of infertility. Conditions such as luteal cyst, follicular cyst etc. is prevailing in the cattle/buffalo population of Nepal. For proper diagnosis of such conditions skilled and competent manpower is required. Even a small error on the diagnosis causes a great loss on the economy. So, it is necessary to train fresh as well as practicing veterinarians about several aspects of infertility and its management.
The objective of this webinar is to train veterinarians and veterinary students about the various causes that hinder the fertility of large animals. Besides training on the causes, our expert speaker will elucidate on how such infertility issues on large animals can be managed. After the completion of this training, we hope that the veterinarians will be able to diagnose the root cause of infertility they are dealing with any large animals, as well as, be able to strategically execute an action to plan the required treatment protocols. Nevertheless, they should also be able to advise the cattle and buffalo farmers on appropriate precautions to be taken for preventing infertility in their animals.
