The Dairy Cattle Reproduction Council will host the webinar "Feeding Strategies to Support Health and Fertility During the Transition Period." Presenter José Eduardo P. Santos of the University of Florida will summarize research that manipulated transition-period diets.

Santos will discuss formulating prepartum diets that consider dietary cation-anion difference, supplementing with rumen-protected choline, developing separate prepartum diets for first-calf heifers and cows, and adding moderate fatty acid to improve fertility. Webinar participants will learn about proper cow comfort and heat abatement to support healthy transition cows.

The webinar will be held at 2 p.m. April 26. Visit www.dcrcouncil.org/webinars to register. Email natalia.martinez-patino@zoetis.com or kristym@dcrcouncil.org for more information.
