Feed Management Monitoring

Beakers of rumen contents

Through research, we provide services for Nutritionists, Veterinarians, and Dairymen with various forms of routine feed management monitoring: 

  • Chlorides, and Blood Glucose & Ketones: for identification and monitoring of sub & clinical ketosis
  • Urine pH: for DCAD effectiveness
  • Fecal Monitoring
  • TMR Sampling

To complete our research, we collect physical samples and data on participating dairies, after which, the samples & data are analyzed and studied. This process allows us to better understand dairy industry’s needs and provide accurate information to the animal agriculture and research communities.

Mitochondria are central to metabolism, nutrition, and health, but many factors can influence their efficiency. The objectives of this study were to determine if specific mitochondrial enzyme activities from peripheral blood mononuclear cells in dairy calves were affected by age or relative gain as a percent of initial weight.
