This entry level workshop will cover the fundamentals of dairy cow nutrition with a practical focus on optimising the performance of milking cows fed temperate forages.

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.

Some key aspects to achieve maximum performance from cows fed temperate forages such as annual ryegrass over winter and early spring;
Monitoring your herd for indicators of nutrition problems;
Balancing diets;
