EMÜ researchers Andres Valdman and Jevgeni Kurõkin attended the 10th International Ruminant Reproduction Symposium (IRRS) at the Wish Resort Golf & Convention in Foz do Iguaçu – Brazil.
Two senior researchers from EMÜ attended the IRRS meeting in Brazil and presented their work as a poster presentation about "Determinants of cytological endometritis in multiparous Holstein cows".
The International Ruminant Reproduction Symposium (IRRS) is recognized as one of the most prestigious international conferences on ruminant reproduction. In the 10th IRRS 32 speakers among the most recognized scientists from around the world presented cutting-edge topics on reproductive biology and technology in a variety of ruminant species, including cattle, sheep, goats, buffaloes, and camelids. In addition to the plenary lectures 157 posters were presented.
Proceedings of the 10th International Ruminant Reproduction Symposium are available at:
Animal Reproduction Volume 15, Issue Supplement 1, 2018 (Proceedings of the 10th International Ruminant Reproduction Symposium)
Andres Waldmann and Jevgeni Kurykin presented the poster „Determinants of cytological endometritis in multiparous Holstein cows“ by A. Waldmann, M. Valdmann, J. Kurykin, T. Kaart, G-K. Mällo and T. Larsen at the symposium.
The plenary speaker Prof. Marc Drillich, University of Veterinary Medicine Vienna recognised the poster by Waldmann et al. by including the poster into his talk „Pathogenesis of uterine diseases in cattle and implications for fertility“ with the suggestion to visit and read the poster.
