This year’s Dairy Solutions Symposium focuses on ‘Production Diseases of the Transition Cow’ and will concentrate on conditions such as ketosis and fatty liver, ruminal acidosis, hypocalcaemia, immuno-suppression, and uterine health. The Symposium will take place from the 28th – 29th of September and will be of interest to veterinarians, farm advisors, nutritionists, and dairy researchers.

Dr. Finbar Mulligan, School of Agriculture, Food Science and Veterinary Medicine said: “Production diseases of the transition cow are a major source of economic loss and a cause of poor animal welfare throughout the dairy industry. Our collaboration with Alltech on this second Dairy Solutions Symposium will advance practical solutions for solving the major economic problems caused by production diseases of the transition cow.”

David Wilde, ruminant technical manager, Alltech (UK), further added: “We are delighted to work in collaboration with UCD and the Symposium represents a joining of forces between an industry leader in the animal feed industry and a major centre of research.”

Leading researchers from Ireland, Great Britain, Australia, America, Canada, Denmark, The Netherlands, and France will present papers investigating the link between nutrition and management and the occurrence of production diseases.
