An upcoming webinar will explore how to test and interpret urine pH in relation to dietary cation-anion difference (DCAD) in dairy cattle. Dairy Nutrition Plus will host the webinar on August 30 at 12:00 PM Central time.

The webinar, titled “Understanding Urine pH of Pre-Fresh Cows Differing in Metabolic Acid-Base Status,” will feature Tim Brown, Ph.D., Director of Technical Support, SoyChlor & SoyPlus, and SoyChlor Regional Sales Manager Brandi Gednalske.

This free 30-minute webinar will discuss:

  • How urine pH testing is useful.
  • What happens to pH testing accuracy during extreme DCAD.
  • Why variability of pH in moderate DCAD isn’t bad.
  • Why which test strips you use matters.
