The 2015 edition of the International Symposium on Dairy Cattle Nutrition in Wageningen, The Netherlands will be held Thursday 22 October 2015. For this edition we welcome Cargill Animal Nutrition as new partner in the organisation, together with Balchem Corporation, Diamond V and the Wageningen Institute of Animal Sciences!

We are currently preparing a challenging scientific programme around the central theme “Dairy cow nutrition and animal health”. Five invited speakers have already confirmed their contributions! Dr. Ariëtte van Knegsel (Wageningen University) will discuss recent developments in transition cow research and Dr. Barry Bradford (Kansas State University) will discuss “How transition cow nutrient metabolism influences the immune system”. Dr. Georg Eller (HCS Herdenmanagement) will share his experience with transition management and nutrition in early lactation, while Kasper Dieho DVM (Wageningen UR) will dive into rumen physiology, discussing “Changes in form and function of rumen papillae during the transition period: the capacity for rumen adaptation in dairy cattle”. Finally Dr. Trevor DeVries (University of Guelph) will speak about “Predicting and identifying health problems through changes in dairy cow behaviour”. Two more speakers completing the scientific programme will be introduced soon. Please check our symposium website for more information; it will be regularly updated with programme details and registration information. The online registration procedure will open 5 June 2015!
