Ceva Santé Animale organised the first ReprodAction Scientific Meeting with a renowned group of researchers on the field of cattle reproduction. The meeting was held on May 3rd and 4th 2012 at the Grand Hôtel de Bordeaux (France).

The main objective of the meeting was to create an environment for open exchange of ideas and science-based discussion among experts on a specific reproductive topic: “Defining, Preventing, and Treating Anoestrus Condition in Cattle”.

Data from different countries and management conditions was presented by participating experts. The proposal was to have a broad understanding of the anoestrus problem in different production systems.
