CNM SEMINAR: Nutritional management for robotic milking herds
Date and Time
Virtual (MS Teams) and in-person (ANNU 141)
Welcome to the July installment of the Nutrition Seminar Series, hosted by the Centre for Nutrition Modelling (Animal Biosciences Department). Each month, we deliver seminars from a different lab within the ABSC Nutrition group, and share their exciting new research in a dynamic manner.
This month we bring you “Nutritional management for robotic milking herds”. The DeVries lab will discuss recent research focused on understanding the variation in dietary formulation for robotic milking herds in Canada, and the association of that with productivity on those herds. We will also present work on dietary factors associated with ketosis prevalence on those farms, as well as recent studies on dietary strategies to reduce that prevalence.
Speakers: Dr. Trevor DeVries, Brandon Van Soest (PhD candidate), and Clayton McWilliams (MSc student)
This seminar will be hosted in ANNU room 141 (live!) and also stream online via TEAMS.
Please feel free to forward these seminar invites to industry partners or others outside the department who may be interested.
