Dairy webinar to explore the power of protein
The webinar will explore how improved protein nutrition can boost production.
SRUC event open to all dairy nutrition professionals.

Members of the veterinary profession are being invited to join a free dairy webinar exploring the benefits of improved protein nutrition.

Hosted by Scotland's Rural College (SRUC), the webinar will look at how improved protein nutrition can boost production, lower feed costs and reduce environmental impact.

Guest speakers include Chris Reynolds from the University of Reading, who will give a presentation on low-protein diets, and John Newbold, professor of dairy nutrition at SRUC, and Lorna MacPherson, dairy consultant from SAC Consulting, who will discuss formulating for amino acids.

Participants will also get an industry perspective from Will Tulley from Evidence Group, Chris Bartram from Mole Valley Farmers and Carrs Billington’s Jimmy Goldie.

“The webinar will be of interest to all dairy nutrition professionals – feed industry technical specialists, consultants and advisors, vets, farmers and students,” said Prof Newbold. “It’s an excellent opportunity to learn how more milk protein, lower feed costs and reduced environmental impact can all result from improved protein nutrition.”

The webinar takes place on Tuesday, 28 July (2 pm - 4 pm). For more information and to sign up, visit
