"Importance of monitoring calving to decrease stillbirth rate and stress induced uterine complications"
死産率とストレスに誘発される子宮疾患を減少させるための分娩管理の重要性
Ottó Ferenc Szenci, University of Veterinary Medicine Budapest, Department and Clinic for Production Animals

Successful genetic selection for milk production has caused a dramatic decline in reproductive performance in dairy cattle all over the world. Achievement of optimum herd reproductive performance requires concentrated management activities during and after calving. The cause of stillbirth with a non-infectious aetiology is likely to be multifactorial and dystocia may explain only about half of them, therefore it is very important to examine its risk factors. While it is not possible to eliminate dystocia, adequate management of heifers during raising and close observation during calving are essential to reduce stillbirth. Since in many cases there are no visible clinical signs of the onset of calving, therefore to predict it is of great importance. Inappropriately timed obstetrical assistance can significantly increase the prevalence of stillbirth, injuries of the soft birth canal, retained fetal membranes and clinical metritis, therefore the effect of eutocia and dystocia on the dam and newborn calves is discussed.

Meiji Seika Pharma Co., Ltd.

Prof. Dr. Hobo of Kagoshima University in Kagoshima Prefecture, the winner prefecture of Wagyu Olympic in 2017, will introduce the actual situation on the current situation of pneumonia treatment of Japanese brand cow ""Wagyu (Japanese Black)"".
Prof. Dr. Hobo himself measures the drug concentration in the Bronchoalveolar Lavage Fluid (BALF) of cattle to which pneumonia injectables have been administered, and sets medical care guidelines based on the evidence obtained on medicinal efficacy at the affected lung tissue. The method of measuring the drug concentration in BALF will also be explained.

"How should we best use of women power in livestock industry? "
産業動物界で女性獣医師等の力を最大限に発揮するにはどうしたらよいか
Chikako Tani, Miyazaki University

In Japan, the number of female large animal veterinarians (FLAV) is on the increase. About half of the aged between their 20s and 30s are females. This phenomena can be coupled with the national women's success promotion policy in Japan. However, working conditions facing FLAV are still severe. In many cases they have to retire earlier than males due to marriage, childcare, care of their aged parents or their own mental disorders. Are these only Japanese problems? We would like to know the working conditions of FLAV in other countries. In this session, we invite speakers from overseas who can introduce their situations and create an open forum for improving Japanese problems. We use cards with YES or NO written on either side, which the audience shows as they participate in discussion. We hope this workshop will contribute to revitalizing the whole livestock industry in Japan.

"The Veterinary Profession and Food in 2025
How might veterinary networks collaborate to deliver innovative improvements in the productivity, quality and welfare standards of wholesome food, produced from healthy animals"

2025年における獣医師と食料生産:健康な動物から生産される良好な食品の、生産性、質と福祉のスタンダードを改善できる革新的な方法を伝達するために獣医ネットワークはどのように協力していけるのか
David Black, Pavagon Vet Group

Global agricultural is facing significant, and quite polar, risks and opportunities, and the veterinary profession lies at the heart of these changes. This workshop will explore with the attendees some of these topics that are facing the profession and will share visions and ideas. It will consider how production animal veterinarians may better develop a consistently effective global veterinary workforce and how various business models for the veterinary sector must remain relevant to the farmer and society. It will discuss the One Health concept; the linkage between human, animal, and environmental health. Veterinarians stand at the intersection of these 3 spheres in virtually all that we do daily and consider the opportunities for the profession. And the workshop will consider how we need to deal with change, taking that down to the practical level looking at the value of good strategic planning and the use of business models, simulations etc.

Workshop 5

August 30 (Thu.), 16:30-18:30 / Room C (Mid-sized Hall)

"Characteristics and prospects of Japanese Black cattle"
黒毛和種牛の特徴と将来への展望
Takeshi Osawa, University of Miyazaki

Japanese Black cattle (JB) is the most popular breed occupying the vast majority (95%) of approximately 2.5 million beef cattle reared in Japan. Known as Wagyu, JB is famous for a good “marbling appearance”, tender texture of meat, and paid attention from all over the world. While several diseases including genetic ones that are peculiar to JB have been reported, many of them has become under control and can be prevented thanks to the research that led to recognition of the pathologic conditions. On the other hand, calf market price has risen sharply in recent years as a result that number of calves born has dropped due to lack of successors of cattle producers. Therefore, improvement of reproductive efficiency to increase calf production is the top-priority issue in beef industry. In this workshop some of the important diseases and reproductive management in JB will be introduced and discussed.

August 30 (Thu.), 16:30-18:30 / Room F (Meeting Room 201+202)

"Mooving to another level as a Buiatrician :
- from individual animal care to trusted advisor in the leadership team. "

牛病専門家のレベルアップ - 個体の診療からチームのリーダー育成ができる信頼される助言者へ
Dr Mark Burgemeister BVSc(Hons), GradCertHlthProfEd, MEpid, MANZCVS (Ruminant Nutrition), CERT IV TAFE
Thinking Cows Pty Ltd, Shepparton, Victoria, Australia.

  • Do you work with the animals, but see the need to work with the leadership group on modern progressive dairy farms?
  • Would you like to work at the long-term, strategic, herd-level rather than the individual cow /calf scale?
  • Would you like to work proactively and be a facilitator and collaborator with the leadership team?
  • Would you like to move from clinician to a farm consultant who is an integral asset to the farm - aspiring to make a difference to whole farm performance? If you answered ‘YES’ to one or more of these questions then this is the workshop for you!

The presenter will guide the participants through a process considering their present and future roles as Buiatricians in business and how to develop their role as a team-member in their clients’ businesses. The presentation will suggest this requires continual development of the Buiatrician’s skills – including strategic thinking and planning skills to help clients adapt, manage risks and monitor and boost business performance.
We will examine present models of delivery and promotion of new services through engagement with a new professional relationship – paid advice (with your legs under the leadership table) rather than ad-hoc or free advice at the animal’s side.
The presentation will outline approaches to assist Buiatricians to guide farm teams to generate their strategic thinking (through creative thinking, client-centred advice, collaborating versus ‘telling’ and planning methodologies) to realise the full potential of their people, organisations and resources.

東日本大震災と福島第一原発事故後の警戒区域内の被災動物からの経験と教訓
Masahiro Natuhori, Kitasato University

This workshop is aimed to announce the effects of nuclear plant disaster on cattle and efforts for recovery/restoration in Fukushima. This group is composed of researchers from 5 Universities from Iwate, Kitasato, Tohoku, Tokyo, and Miyazaki and with a lot of great help from very well understood and cooperative cattle farmers and local/public administration.
Since only this group has long worked for investigating how the radiation dose rate changed and how was the geographic distribution of the radiation dose and contamination since the explosion of the nuclear plant and, how much of the radiation dose received from environment, radiation effects on the survivors of Japanese black cattle (Wagyu) kept and raised outside in Fukushima soon after the earthquake and nuclear plant explosion in 2011, they have collected a lot of data set and analyzed the effects of low dose radiation on surrounding cattle in many ways until now.
