It's all about stability ! How to keep ruminant feeding effective


Ruminal fermentation is a complex process. Nevertheless, the rumen is able to adapt and cope with a lot of adverse influences. We now understand that fermentation processes are even more complex than just being "normal" or "leading to acidosis". Understanding how the rumen regulates itself and how it can be regulated by feed and feed materials is therefore vital for effective dairy production.

In this webinar, you will learn about the fundamentals as well as the latest insights into ruminal fermentation. The principles of dairy cow feeding are known, but in order to keep ruminal fermentation effective, we need to pay more attention to management and control. You will hear about ways to ensure this effectiveness and how the strategic use of feed materials may help you improve ruminal function and production.
