Dr. Paul Fricke


Area of Expertise
Dr. Paul Fricke’s research focuses on developing and improving methods for reproductive management of dairy cattle. He has published research on hormonal protocols for synchronization of ovulation and timed AI in lactating dairy cows in confinement-based and grazing-based dairies, resynchronization systems for lactating dairy cows and heifers, hormonal protocols for synchronization of ovulation and timed AI in dairy heifers, factors affecting twinning and management of dairy cows carrying twin fetuses, and methods for early detection of non-pregnancy in cattle. The goal of Dr. Fricke’s extension program is to maximize reproductive efficiency of dairy cattle by applying knowledge gained through basic scientific research to develop practical management programs and technologies for use in production dairy cattle operations. Since 1997, Paul has spoken to over 350 audiences in Wisconsin and has presented over 80 invited talks at conferences in 26 U.S. states and five Canadian provinces. In addition, Paul has been an invited speaker for international dairy producer, industry, and veterinary audiences in Argentina, Austria, Ecuador, Germany, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Poland, South Africa, Spain, Thailand, and Turkey.
