Description: This seminar is for practitioners who would like to learn diet design and protein/amino acid balancing using the most up-to-date nutrition modeling. You will need intermediate knowledge of basic nutrition concepts (understanding ADF, NDF, etc). We will provide basic knowledge on data collection needed to evaluate the nutritional status of a herd, how to build a ration by critically selecting ingredients to minimize costs and maximize performance, and design the nutrient profile of a ration according to different objectives. We will cover different group feeding strategies. On Day 2, we will work with AMTS and NDS software balancing programs in small groups divided into beginner, intermediate and advanced, led by instructors who are balancing dairy diets on a daily basis.
