These stress events can include transport, feed changes, extremes in temperatures, weaning and others, where the animal's body reacts in a way that negatively affects health status or performance. The group learned more about specific benefits of TechMix products and their effectiveness in promoting health, performance and recovery during these stress events.
A framework of sharing and partnership amongst the group was evident as there was ample time for sharing challenges and successes along with two dairy farm tours. The tours provided the contingent with practical on site training by observing specific best practices and identifying opportunities where improvements could be made and how TechMix products can have a significant impact.
