Mineral Nutrition of Dairy Cows next on Hoards Dairyman webinar

Bill Weiss, The Ohio State University, will present “Update on mineral nutrition of dairy cows” at noon (Central time) on Monday, May 12 during the free monthly Hoard’s Dairyman webinar.

Because of changes in productivity and basal diets and feeds, mineral requirements of dairy cows need to be continually updated. Although cows require at least 18 different minerals, we’ll focus on magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sulfur, chromium, copper, manganese and selenium. Concentration recommendations will be shared. As always, input from attendees is welcome.

Hoard’s Dairyman launched its free webinar series four years ago in conjunction with the University of Illinois. The educational sessions are held the second Monday of each month and are broadcast live from noon until 1 p.m. (Central time).

Each hour-long webinar includes nationally known and carefully selected presenters who discuss the most timely and relevant challenges faced by today’s dairy producers. Past topics include finance, nutrition, milk quality, herd care, milk marketing and dairy policy.
