- Gain a deeper understanding of calf and cow metabolism, diet formulation, and their combined impact on health, production, and reproduction.
- Leave with 30 Skype minutes to use with each professor, a custom binder, and access to event recordings.
We would like to welcome you to our house (literally!). We want to provide the dairy industry and their partners an outstanding learning experience in Urbana, IL. We will create a safe environment to share the newest findings from our research programs, how they can be applied in the field, and where do we see the area evolving to. We will have the time to seat down with you and discuss your particular questions. We want you to challenge us with your challenges. At the end of TRANSITION ILLINOIS, you and your partners should be able to better understand calf and cow’s metabolism, diet formulation, and their impact on health, production, and reproduction that are applied to your reality.
