Public Release: 

The 29th Discover Conference and the Dairy NRC

Elsevier Health Sciences

Champaign, IL. - November 3, 2014: The American Dairy Science Association® (ADSA®) is again taking the lead in assuring that the National Research Council's Nutrient Requirements of Dairy Cattle (7th rev. ed., 2001), is updated in a timely manner. Through contributions from the ADSA Foundation and eleven (11) industry partners, full funding is in place. We are pleased to announce another action by ADSA and the ADSA Foundation to help move the effort forward, the 29th Discover Conference - "Amino Acid Requirements of Dairy Cattle." This topic is important to the dairy industry and timely because the discussion will feed into the National Research Council (NRC) Committee activities to update the Nutrient Requirements of Dairy Cattle. The DISCOVER Conference will provide a venue for discussions about amino acid requirements and be an important source of new information for the NRC committee.

Discover 29 Conference topics include: protein and amino acid supply; protein and amino acid requirements; modeling and models; low crude protein diets and environmental impacts; and field applications - industry panel discussion.

Registration is now open (but limited to the first 130 participants), so put it on your calendar and make plans to attend:

29th Discover Conference
