(2017-10-19)Finding the right balance of fiber and energy in a fresh cow ration can be challenging to both keep the rumen healthy while also optimizing production. This talk will be focused on investigating the effects of fiber ...
(2017-10-19)Fiber is complicated! We will take a look at aNDF, aNDFom, NDFD, uNDFom and other nutrient parameters as it relates to updated biology in rumen models and its practical applications in the field.
It’s the Combination: Scientific Data Review of the First Corn Silage to Bring Together Fiber and Starch Digestibility (2017-10-19)A recent study compared a newly developed brown midrib 3 corn silage with floury endosperm to a conventional corn silage and a brown midrib 3 corn silage for high-producing Holstein cows. The combination of greater rumen ...
(2017-10-19)In this session, changes and the collaborations between Penn State and Cornell that are occurring to refine the process of corn hybrid evaluation for silage will be reviewed. Methods of assessing fiber digestibility are ...
Effect of Dietary Supplementation of Two Froms of a B-Vitamin and Choline Blend on the Performance of Holstein Calves During the Transition and Early Postweaning Period (2017-10-19)Should we add B-vitamins and choline to calf starters? These nutrients are often ignored in calf starter formulation as it is assumed that calves can get sufficient amounts from the diet and ruminal synthesis. This ...
