Calogero Stelletta Member status: Diplomate of the ESCRHM Areas of interest:
Small ruminant health and reproduction.  Veterinary reproduction. Andrology and gynecology.  Assisted reproductive technologies.  Farm Animal Welfare. Global challenges in small ruminant production. Biography: Calogero Stelletta is an associate professor of clinics in reproduction and reproductive technologies at the University of Padova, School of Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine, Italy. He covered a position for foreigner professor of animal reproduction and artificial insemination at the Ankara University, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Turkey. He qualified with DVM degree from the University of Perugia and its Faculty of Veterinary Medicine in 1997 and was subsequently awarded a Ph.D. in 2003 by University of Perugia for the studies regarding the natural biological rhythms of clinical parameters showed by farm animals during different environmental conditions. He has a specialist interest in the subject of farm animal health and reproduction management. He has interests in the optimization of reproductive technologies application in small ruminants and his list of about 180 academic publications includes alternative approaches to animal health and reproduction monitoring system. Ultrasonography and thermography as physics and biochemical parameters are considered deeply integrated in the classical examination for both individual and flock/group approach. High interest has been reserved to the camelids health and reproduction due to the numeric increase in Europe and to the medicine peculiarities of those species.
