For dairy cows, the old adage “you are what you eat” isn’t the only thing that matters — how and when cows are fed is also important. Nutritional programs for dairy cows are optimized when cows eat consistently, in terms of both a schedule and the composition of the diet. Learn the critical components of feeding — including monitoring feed components, mixing and delivery and providing continuous access to feed — to ensure that the health, productivity and efficiency of your cows are at their very best.
Milk production and consumption can have a significant socioeconomic and environmental impact, especially in low-income countries. Through the sustainable intensification of milk production, however, the dairy industry has the opportunity to increase the supply and availability of nutrients consumed by vulnerable populations while also reducing the environmental impact of agriculture. Learn more in this session about how farming interventions are making it possible to ramp up milk production in low-income countries.
The dairy industry must deal with narrow margins during volatile times. Dairy nutritionists and managers need to understand the potential losses in productivity associated with exposure to dietary anti-nutritional factors — like mycotoxins. As our basic understanding of mycotoxins grows, however, our prevention and mitigation strategies improve. This session will feature a discussion of new information that reveals how mycotoxins affect dairy production, health and overall profitability, as well as some practical tools and steps for managing and mitigating mycotoxins.
