DCRC Reproduction Awards
Each year DCRC honors the best of the best, dairy producers who have successfully implemented management procedures that have achieved high reproductive efficiency. This program awards producers in both Holstein and non-Holstein categories.
The Dairy Cattle Reproduction Council (DCRC) is accepting nominations for the 2020 Reproduction Awards program, which recognizes outstanding dairy operations for reproductive efficiency and well-implemented management procedures. Nominations will be accepted starting March 1, 2020.
Dairy operations must be nominated by professionals who serve the dairy industry, such as veterinarians, genetic and pharmaceutical company representatives, DHIA field personnel or Extension specialists. Nomination forms can be completed at the bottom of this page or filled out via PDF and mailed to the address listed below. All nominations are due by April 30, 2020. (Online nominations are preferred.)
If you need assistance in gathering the required information from your management software, we have included three instruction sheets for your use. You may also contact the DCRC office or JoDee Sattler at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Judges will review applications and select the top herds, who will be asked to provide additional information about their operation. This information will help the judges select Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze winners. Award recipients will be honored at the 2020 DCRC Annual Meeting in Madison, Wisconsin, November 11-12, 2020.
