Obtaining a calf every year in a dairy herd appears to be a difficult goal yet is achievable with concerted efforts of dairy farmers and veterinarians. The core role of dairy veterinarians remains individual animal examinations but this must be supplemented with systematic herd fertility investigation and veterinarian-led herd fertility management. This new role encompasses leading the change from clinical calls only to a planned approach to herd fertility, demonstrating the cost-benefits of the program, scheduling fertility management consultations, assisting the farmer in setting specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and time-limited goals. The application of such goals in dairy herds is possible when the dairy farmer is ready to adopt the newer protocols of fixing voluntary waiting periods and applying estrus synchronization and timed inseminations with high fertility semen. For individual cows the role of the owner is increased as compared to the veterinary professional. An important consideration for the farmer is not to wait for prolonged periods of 6 months to get his cows pregnant again post calving. I
