Badger Dairy Insight

Sep. 19 @ 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.


Join the University of Wisconsin-Madison Division of Extension’s Dairy Program from 11 a.m. to noon Sept. 19 for the Badger Dairy Insight webinar series. Ryan Pralle, assistant professor in the school of agriculture at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville, will talk about two projects. The first topic will be on a novel blood panel developed that will predict high liver triglyceride status in multiparous cows as a proxy for fatty liver. His second topic will be on the impact of early lactation milking frequency. He will discuss the differences in productivity, possibly nutrient partitioning and surprising lack of habituation/training on the high frequency cows to high voluntary visits after they stopped fetching intensively.
