In this video, Dr. John Goeser from Rock River Labs reviews his research on the many forms of fatty acid variation in dairy cattle feed and applies Rock River Lab's capabilities on identifying the total fatty acid content in feeds.
What You Will Learn:
- Improved fatty acid nutrition will increase health and reproduction performance.
- Provide a better understanding of feed conversion efficiency to improve fatty acid nutrition and cash flow.
- Begin with understanding the Total Fatty Acid level within the forages and then the Fatty Acid Profile.
Dr. John Goeser grew up in the agriculture industry as his family’s dairy near Plymouth, Wisconsin grew from 60 head in the 1980’s to now over 1,000 cows. After earning Bachelor of Science degrees in Dairy Science and Agronomy at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Goeser earned a Master of Science degree in Plant Breeding & Genetics as well as a Master of Science degree and Ph.D. in Dairy Science from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. After gaining experience in graduate school as a nutritionist and moving to a technical nutrition and support position within the feed industry, Goeser started his tenure with Rock River Laboratory in 2012. In his current role with Rock River Laboratory, Goeser oversees animal nutrition, technical support, and research, specifically centering his focus on carbohydrate digestion, forage management and trends, and more recently, feed hygiene. Through an adjunct assistant professor appointment with the University of Wisconsin- Madison Dairy Science Department, Goeser contributes lectures discussing carbohydrate digestion, rumen metabolism and forage preservation to the future of the dairy industry.
