WHERE: JCU Centre, Next to Malanda Vet Clinic Malanda, Qld
WHO: Dr Brad Granzin, Executive Officer of Subtropical Dairy will facilitate a one-day workshop focussing on the basics of dairy cow nutrition.

The workshop will begin with a morning theory session covering the following topics:

  • The major nutrients required for milk production and dairy cow maintenance
  • An overview of the cow’s digestive tract and how it absorbs and processes key nutrients
  • What are some key things to focus on to achieve maximum performance from cows fed Setaria and other tropical pastures during summer.
  • Monitoring your herd for indicators of nutrition problems.
  • Question and answer session

This will be followed by a practical session on-farm focusing on pastures, the milking herd and supplementary feeding.

This workshop is a great introduction to dairy cow nutrition science and practices.  It is also a great refresher for honing your nutrition skills.
