Dairy nutrition specialists and dairy producers have an opportunity to learn about a wide array of industry issues and new research at the 2010 Tri-State Dairy Nutrition Conference April 20-21 at the Grand Wayne Center in Fort Wayne, Ind.
The conference, which is a partnership between Purdue University, Michigan State University and Ohio State University, will offer both producers and nutritionists practical information that can be incorporated into nutrition businesses as well as on-farm.
"The dairy industry has been facing big challenges because of the low milk prices," says Tamilee Nennich, Purdue dairy nutrition specialist. "Some of the conference sessions will focus on balancing diets and which nutrients really are needed to help animal health and performance. We'll also cover feed management and the types of ration changes that occurred this year because of the low milk prices."
Other hot topics will include molds and mycotoxins, animal welfare and the way feeding animals affects air quality measures.
