Nutrition Conference to Look at Cattle Health During Hard Times28 March 2013
US - Dairy nutritionists, veterinarians, producers and others interested in the industry are invited to attend the Tri-State Dairy Nutrition Conference, hosted by Ohio State, Purdue and Michigan State Universities.
The 22nd annual conference is April 23-24 at the Grand Wayne Center, 120 West Jefferson Blvd., Fort Wayne, Ind.
"One of the major things facing the dairy industry is the cost of production, and volatile milk prices and increased feed prices in recent years have eroded the profitability of dairy farms," said Maurice Eastridge, Ohio State Extension dairy specialist.
"The goal of the conference is to help dairy advisers take information back to their customers' farms to help improve profitability, nutritional status and animal performance."
The conference will feature presentations from experts from across the United States and beyond on three themes: herd health and management, new technologies and improving animal and herd efficiency.TheCattleSite News Desk
