The Florida Ruminant Nutrition Symposium was hosted by University of Florida on February 3-5, 2020. The conference included the latest research and advances on diet formulation and nutritional management of dairy and beef cattle to improve efficiency of nutrient utilization, and animal production, health, and reproduction.
As a proud sponsor, Virtus Nutrition provided a pre-conference with a lineup of experts in fatty acid nutrition. Dr. Tom Jenkins guides us through the event with casual sit-down interviews from both the pre-conference and the symposium itself.
Improved Reproduction with Fatty Acid Nutrition
In this interview with Dr. Jenkins, Dr. Jose Santos reviews his presentation of evaluating the effects of fatty acid nutrition and fertility responses using data from a meta-analysis summary. Dr. Santos explains that the results clearly show that supplementing lactating cows early with fatty acids enhanced the overall reproductive performance of the herd.
