Programme for Sustainable Dairy Farming

Dietary factors influencing fiber
digestibility in dairy cattle
with Dr. Barry Bradford

The costs of the feed ration account for approximately 60% of all the variable costs involved in milk production of dairy cows.

Laboratory assays quantifying fibre digestibility can be used to help predict the ability of dairy cows to consume additional feed, which ultimately impacts milk production.

Dr. Barry Bradford from Michigan State University conducts research focused on dairy cattle nutrition and metabolism, with a particular emphasis on attempting to translate novel findings in fundamental metabolic physiology to practical applications in animal agriculture.

During his presentation entitled “Dietary factors influencing fiber digestibility in dairy cattle" he discussed important nutritional strategies to improve fiber digestibility, including the impact of trace mineral source on ruminal fiber digestibility.

The video of this webinar will soon be available.
