FORT WAYNE, Ind. — Ohio State, Purdue and Michigan State universities are partnering to present the 20th annual Tri-State Dairy Nutrition Conference April 19-20 at the Grand Wayne Center, 120 W. Jefferson Boulevard, in Fort Wayne, Ind.
Conference sessions will be based on four themes: “Dairy Nutrition: Past and Future,” “Management of Transition Cows,” “Feeding System Management” and “Forage Management.”
One of the main targets of the conference is the management of transition cows. Because those animals are so vulnerable, specialists will focus on the transition diet and ways to quickly identify which transition cows may have problems.
Another focus will be forage management. Conference talks will teach participants about grasses, forage quality and managing rations.
Many feed companies also will be present to visit with producers about the newest nutrition technologies.
Registration of $165 per person includes meals, materials and conference proceedings. Discounted registration fees are available for organizations with groups of five or more.
Registration deadline is April 8. Late registrants will be charged an additional $30 fee.
