THE NETHERLANDS - Entitled ‘Rumen Health: A 360o Analysis’, the 5th Dairy Solutions Symposium will see global health and nutrition company, Alltech, join forces with the Centre for Animal Nutrition, the Netherlands to highlight the importance of rumen health in dairy cattle.

The symposium, which will be held on the de Uithof Campus of Utrecht University, the Netherlands, from 1-2 July, 2010, will bring together leading scientists in dairy nutrition representing both industry and academia.

This two-day symposium will showcase the latest in animal research while also providing a platform for the discussion of current on-farm issues. It will examine the impact of rumen health on dairy cattle, with specific focus on: the impact of rumen pH on ruminal digestion, occurrence and prevention of sub-acute rumen acidosis, maintenance of an optimum rumen function and ruminal adaptations during the transition period.

Alltech’s European Ruminant Technical Manager, Sylvie Andrieu, said, “This is an excellent opportunity for industry to work in conjunction with one of the leading European research institutes on an area that is of utmost importance to the dairy industry”.
