Partners from SERIDA organised the first GLOMICAVE training course “Basics in health survey and blood sample collection and processing in new-born calves”, which took place from 22nd – 23rd of June in the SERIDA facilities located in Asturias (Spain).
The training session was addressed to expert veterinarians involved in reproductive and obstetric tasks in the scope of the GLOMICAVE project. The participants discussed for normalization of recording signs of calf health and talked about the use of portable blood biochemical analysis on site.
The health of calves born in the framework of the experiments carried out in the fertility case study of GLOMICAVE is carefully monitored. Additionally, plasma samples collected for calves were carefully obtained, processed and stored for future omics studies. All these results and skills gained in the project can be applied in future veterinary clinics.
The GLOMICAVE cattle fertility business case
Within GLOMICAVE project, partners are leading a business case to promote the identification and validation of different biomarkers predicting pregnancy and birth in cattle with the goal to increase the knowledge of pathways involved in pregnancy establishing and fertility prediction in cattle embryo transfer.
The GLOMICAVE approach can help to develop and identify efficient biomarkers to select competent embryos and recipients in livestock sector, increasing the potential of pregnancy expectation.
