A comprehensive reference book on all aspects of bovine reproduction was recently published under the leadership of a Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine professor.
Dr. Richard Hopper, professor in the MSU-CVM Department of Pathobiology and Population Medicine, is lead author and editor-in-chief of “Bovine Reproduction.” Hopper is section leader for the CVM Theriogenology, Ambulatory and Food Animal Medicine Service. Theriogenology is the study of animal reproduction.
The mission of the ACT is to promote animal well-being, reproductive health, responsible breeding and genetic practices, and efficient management of breeding-age animals in agriculture, veterinary practice, zoos, preserves, and ecosystems. In particular, the ACT envisions development of focus areas in theriogenology to incorporate the following in theriogenology/reproductive medicine:
1. Population control for domestic and non-domestic animals including feral animals, free-ranging and captive wildlife.
2. Genomics in livestock and companion animal practice.
