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.
Representatives from feed, feed additive and dairy industry, knowledge institutes and governmental organisations as well as veterinarians, students and others who are interested are welcome to attend the 2020 symposium!
