Program Advanced Dairy Farming - Seminar
Tuesday 13 November - 14.00 hours


Advanced Dairy Farming
Dairy farms are getting bigger and this challenges the craftsmanship of dairy farmers to keep the cows healthy and productive. An increasing amount of technology and tools are coming to market that help dairy farmers to do just that. Think of sensors or new and more efficient ways to run the farm and pastures. In this seminar, we take a look at a selection of current and near future applications and ideas in advanced dairy farming that help dairy farmers make better decisions in their daily work.

Transition cows - break the vicious circle of metabolic disorders & systemic inflammation to increase milk profit
Dr. Valentin Nenov, DVM, MBA, Global Ruminant Manager at Phileo

  • The weeks around parturition are the most challenging during the life of the dairy cow with great impact on the cow's productivity throughout the whole lactation
  • Systemic inflammation during the first weeks post calving is correlated with higher incidences of metabolic disorders and reduces milk yield
  • New studies demonstrate that controlling the inflammation around calving can significantly improve the metabolic adaptation and increase milk yield
