Kemin: second ruminant European tour
After the successful 2008 Ruminant Tour, Kemin would like to announce their
third series of meetings to be held during March - April this year in
collaboration once more with Prof. Charles Schwab from the University of New
The event will take place in 6 countries around
Eastern Europe and Middle East
, with the aim of further extending the
scientific knowledge and showing practical economic benefits achieved from
Balancing Amino Acids.
The adoption of the concept of balancing ruminant
diets for amino acids (AA) continues to increase in the United States and in
Europe. However, the increase in the rate of implementation, as measured largely
by sales of protected methionine (Met), has been linked to differences in milk
prices and feed costs with uptake being slowest when feed costs are high and
prices for milk and milk protein are lower. However, it has been my experience,
says Prof. Schwab, that even when milk prices have been at their lowest, long
term financial benefits could be realized by balancing for AA.
delighted to once more have Prof. Schwab with us in 6 countries, says Ir. Ainhoa
Perojo. Last year's tour gathered together key ruminant nutritionist who
recognized the need for a further improvement on Dairy Nutrition. Prof. Schwab
is best known for his research on dairy cattle nutrition
; in particular
in amino acid balancing. In the last 10 years, Prof. Schwab has made over 100
presentations on protein nutrition and its effect on milk production and cow
health. After his highly informative lectures around Europe last year, Kemin has
decided to bring Prof. Schwab expert knowledge to a wider audience." In addition
to Prof. Schwab every conference will have well known local speakers from
Research Centres, Universities and the feed industry.
