Importance & Considerations of Formulating Diets for AA

During this Webinar Chuck Schwab, Professor Emeritus, University of New Hampshire; Principal, Schwab Consulting is presentig his insights on: Importance & Considerations of Formulating Diets for AA Dr. Chuck Schwab clearly defines why amino acids (AA) are the nutrients required by the dairy cow not crude protein (CP) or metabolizable protein (MP). He dials in on the key considerations for the selection of ingredients to use in AA formulation, the challenges of estimating the intestinal lysine digestibility, particularly of heat treated proteins, and how to obtain reliable metabolizable AA concentrations for rumen-protected AA products.

Smart Science Series
Through the Smart Science Series of six webinars, explore the rewards of amino acid balancing and ration formulation. In the first five webinars, a university professor discusses the aspect in which he is the top industry expert. The sixth webinar is forward looking, as two university professors discuss aligning genetic potential with nutritional requirements for longevity and sustainability.
