Hello Victor, I appreciate your inquiry about slow-release ureas, particularly in the context of NitroShure. Our goal with NitroShure is to achieve a balanced release of nitrogen, strategically positioning it between Soybean Meal (SBM) and urea. This careful calibration is pivotal to ensuring an effective synergy between carbohydrates and nitrogen. The moderate release speed inherent in NitroShure is intentional. It facilitates the efficient utilization of nitrogen by...

Global warming and the constant increase in cow yields aggravate the summer problem on dairy farms and increase the production losses caused to dairy producers. An important part of the losses caused is due to the negative effect of heat load on the fertility of cows that are inseminated in summer. To characterize this effect, we collected data from five large-scale, high-yield dairy farms (1,500 to 3,000 dairy cows per herd) located in the "Laguna" region of northern Mexico, characterized...

Global warming and the constant increase in cow’s milk yield exacerbate the summer problem in dairy farms and increase the production loss caused to milk producers. In order to quantify these losses, I collected data from five large scale high yielding dairy farms (1,500 to 3,000 cows per herd), located in the Torreon region, north Mexico, characterized by a desert climate, with close to 180 stressful days, where cows are exposed to heat stress conditions. Despite the desire to compare...

Matheus Paez Martins Narciso (University of Alberta)       Although the importance of pH and short-chain fatty acids on rumen development are well known, their impact on the small and large intestine are unclear. This study investigated the effects of ruminal short-chain fatty acid concentrations ([SCFA]) and pH on the rumen and intestine of calves. Holstein bull calves (n = 32) were individually housed and fed milk replacer (900 g/d) twice daily and calf...

Brian Aldridge (University of Illinois)       Biological health is a complex topic of discussion and is often misunderstood as existing as a binary state in terms of the presence or absence of disease. In many ways, it is useful to explain health at a population or system level as the existence of individuals in 1 of 3 states: those in a healthy condition, those with a prediseased status, and those in a diseased state. At a systems level, it is useful to...

Mohamed Donia (University of Illinois)      Ruminant neonates rely on colostral immunoglobulin and nutrients to support health, welfare, and performance, by protecting against infectious disease and providing early life resilience. Recent evidence suggests that transferred colostral cells also contribute to neonatal immunity under controlled experimental conditions. This study provides evidence that colostral cells enhance neonatal resilience to routine,...

Lipid encapsulation has proved to be a valuable tool for protecting nutrients from degradation during processing, storage and digestion and making them available for absorption by the animal. Over the last years, many new encapsulated nutrients have entered the market. These products, and the processes that create them, differ greatly in design, technology, and unfortunately, performance. High quality encapsulated nutrients can provide nutritionists with a great deal of flexibility to...

Summer heat stress is currently one of the biggest causes of economic losses to the global dairy industry, especially in the hot regions of the world. The International Dairy Federation (IDF) decided to deal with the problem and established recently an expert's committee to examine the issue and recommend ways to deal with it at the global level. After being recommended by the Israeli Dairy Board to participate in this committee, I found myself serving in a central role in...

Dairy cows are often thought of as metabolic super athletes, requiring hard work and a herculean effort to achieve high milk production. In reality, it’s just the opposite. Productivity is an expression of health and vitality, not a result of the cow working under stress. Put a cow in a healthy environment, provide adequate nutrition and they’ll fully express their genetic potential in the form of exceptional milk production. Instead of involving hard...
