Methyl donors from transition to lactation

During this webinar Dr. Jose Santos, Animal Science, University of Florida, USA is presenting his insights on: Methyl donors from transition to lactation Methyl groups play important roles in the metabolic pathways of dairy cows. A shortage of supply particularly during the transition period can have profound effects on postpartum health and whole lactation performance. The ready availability of methyl groups affects numerous cellular functions, impacts phospholipid synthesis, and influences the efficiency of production. There is a complex web of interactions between the different sources of methyl donors that is not yet fully understood.

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.
