Pasteurized waste milk and gut bacteria

While research has documented conclusively that pasteurizing waste milk significantly reduces bacterial levels in the liquid calf feed source, USDA researchers have taken an interesting look at how the feeding practice affects long-term gut flora in the animals. FULL STORY »

Nutrient digestibilities measured

Measuring individual feed nutrient concentration is common practice for field dairy nutritionists. However, accurately measuring nutrient digestibility and using digestion values in total digestible nutrients models is more challenging. FULL STORY »

Researchers compare corn silage harvest practices

Researchers from the University of Wisconsin-Madison examined 24 peer-reviewed journal articles published over an 11-year period to determine the effects of different corn silage harvest practices on dry matter intake and lactation performance of dairy cows. FULL STORY »

Are distillers grains responsible for milkfat depression?

Is milkfat depression the result of too much corn distillers grains in the diet, the cows’ reaction to a knee-jerk dietary change, or something else? FULL STORY »

Amino acid balancing a growing priority

More and more dairy producers and nutritionists are balancing their rations for amino acids, according to a series of studies conducted in 2008, 2010 and 2012. FULL STORY »

Almost 60 percent of colostrum on dairy farms is inadequate

The contributions of high-quality colostrum to the health and productivity of dairy calves — in both their early stages and throughout their lifetimes ? have been well-documented. FULL STORY »

Evaluation of quality, composition of colostrum on dairy farms

The objective of this study was to characterize the quality of maternal colostrum (MC) fed to newborn dairy calves in the United States and identify the proportion of MC that meets industry standards for IgG concentration and total plate count. FULL STORY »

Starter protein content evaluated

Does increasing the level of crude protein (CP) in calf starter grain affect performance? FULL STORY »

Dual-purpose inoculants show promise in study

Do your clients run the risk of spoiled silage? Researchers from the University of Florida have found that a dual-purpose inoculant can help. FULL STORY »

Effect of a dual-purpose inoculant

This project aimed to determine effects of applying an inoculant containing homofermentative and heterofermentative bacteria on the fermentation, nutritive value, aerobic stability and nutrient losses from corn silage produced in farm-scale silos. FULL STORY »

Heifers affected by method of feed delivery

Method of feed delivery can affect the growth and feed efficiency of young heifers transitioning to a higher-forage diet, according to research from Purdue University. FULL STORY »
