The energy metabolism of dairy cows in all its complexity is central to performance and production as well as animal health. This is evident in the transition period, when the energy requirements rapidly increase and metabolic capacity is challenged. During the rest of the lactation cycle as well, the interaction between the protein and energy metabolism and the relation with the immune system are very relevant.
The International Dairy Nutrition Symposium 2021 will be held online as an interactive webinar on Thursday 25 March 2021. Experts from the Netherlands and abroad will present their vision on different aspects of energy metabolism in dairy cattle. Each talk will be followed by a discussion with the audience, led by our webinar host Dr. Han Swinkels.
