    Current Concepts in Hypocalcemia
    McArt, Jessica (2019-04-09)
    We will review calcium physiology in the periparturient period of dairy cows and discuss the incidence of clinical and subclinical hypocalcemia. We will then discuss classification of persistent subclinical hypocalcemia and the health and production consequences associated with this pervasive disorder.

    Livestock and Climate Change: Fact or Fiction
    Mitloehner, Frank (2019-04-09)
    Growing global demands for dairy products could strongly increase environmental pressures. Knowledge exists to improve efficiencies in dairy production and lessons can be learned from modern production successes that can reduce the environmental footprint of a dairy. Sustainable intensification is called for, where technology transfers from developed to developing countries occur along with knowledge of efficiency improvements. The goal is to supply a growing demand for dairy products using sustainable and modern production practices without depleting the world’s natural resources.

    Nutrition and Reproduction in Transition Cows
    Butler, Ron (2019-04-09)
    The transition from late pregnancy to the onset of lactation is the most challenging period in the life of a dairy cow – metabolically, health-wise, and nutritionally. The interaction of these factors sets the tone for each cows’ milk production and reproductive success during lactation. The presentation will explore how the interaction of feed intake, energy metabolism and health status during the transition period can exert carry-over effects on reproductive performance of cows.

    Circadian Rhythms and Feed Management
    Harvatine, Kevin (2019-04-09)
    Dairy cows have a daily pattern of feed intake the has a large impact on the rumen. Total mixed rations do not solve this problem, but managing feeding and milking times allows us to improve stability of the rumen.
