1. Therefore, Objective 1 is to identify, synthesize, and organize scientific knowledge and technologies that would improve dairy reproductive efficiency and herd economics.
2. Then Objective 2, supported in previous Objective, is to develop a suite of innovative stochastic, dynamic dairy herd simulation and optimization models capable to integrate reproductive managerial changes and assess the economic value of these changes.
3. And Objective 3, supported in previous two objectives, is to develop and disseminate a suite of web-based decision computer applications to support final users cost-efficient and profitable dairy reproductive decision-making.
