Pancosma will once again sponsor the American Dairy Science Association® (ADSA®) annual meeting from June 24 – 27, 2018 in Knoxville, Tennessee, USA.

Also Pancosma especially supports the symposium on Growth and Development called “Post-Weaning and Beyond” on June 26th by the following speakers/affiliates & presentations:

  • Walter Gerrits, Wageningen University: Macronutrient metabolism in the growing calf
  • Jud Heinrichs, Pennsylvania State University: Growing and developing heifers from preweaning to calving at 22 months
  • Mike Van Amburgh, Cornell University: Integration of post-weaning nutrient requirements and supply with growth and mammary development in modern dairy heifers
  • Jim Quigley, Provimi: Reevaluation of NRC energy estimates in calf feeds

Introduction to the symposium:
“Most of our knowledge about weaning dairy calves and rumen development was generated decades ago using milk and solid feeding strategies that are very different from those in use today. With the recent adoption of new feeding strategies, such as elevated milk and automated feeding, weaning has become an even more critical period that can affect long-term growth, health, and potentially future productivity. In addition, as we continue to unlock the growth potential of preweaned calves by increasing feed intake, the recommendations for how to properly manage calves for the next two years need to be redefined…”[1]
