During the proposed program, (15/12/2016 to 16/2/2017), Dr. Reinaldo Cooke will be primarily associated with a research project focusing on reproductive performance of beef females, but will also participate in other research projects funded by FAPESP which he serves as "associated researcher". In regards to the main research project, Dr. Reinaldo Cooke will be involved with "Impacts of estrus expression and intensity during the estrus synchronization protocol + artificial insemination on parameters associated with fertility and pregnancy establishment in beef females". Dr. Cooke's participation is critical for the development of this efforts due to several reasons, including elaboration, supervision, interpretation, and publication of results (due to his vast experience in cattle reproductive management), sample collection and physical activity assessment (due to his specific training in these methodologies), laboratorial analyses (samples will be analyzed in Dr. Reinaldo Cooke's laboratory at the Oregon State University), as well as planning for future research efforts based on the results acquired from the current projects. In regards to involvement in other research efforts funded by FAPESP, Dr. Reinaldo Cooke's participation is imperative due to: 1) FAPESP 2014/14136-4 = assist with scientific reports and publication of journal articles into the Journal of Animal Science, 2) FAPESP 2014/13291-6 = assist with publication of experiment 2 in the Journal of Dairy Science, 3) FAPESP 2015/26627-5 = assist with planning for blood analysis in which have vast experience, and 4) FAPESP 2014/05473-7 = assist with interpretation and statistical analyses of results collected to this moment. It is important to mention that Dr. Reinaldo Cooke received a similar funding from FAPESP (2012/16856-9; 2014/19485-7), which resulted in several research articles and abstracts, technology/information Exchange among OSU and academic institutions in São Paulo state, as well as teaching and outreach activities. Hence, we firmly believe that this proposal will have similar, if not greater, benefits to all parts involved based on previous experiences, as well as the quality of information generated by the planned activities.
