Calf Nutrition and Pathology symposium

Alltech teams up with the Institut Polytechnique LaSalle Beauvais and the École nationale vétérinaire d’Alfort to organise the 4th Dairy Solutions Symposium. This event will highlight the most recent developments in the area of calf nutrition and pathology.

The symposium,
which will focus on calf health from birth to six months of age, will be held on
campus at the Institut Polytechnique LaSalle Beauvais, France, from 25-26
September, 2008.

In an era of high operational costs, the optimisation of
calf growth and performance plays an essential part in increasing the
profitability of a dairy farm. This symposium will showcase the latest in animal
research while also providing a platform for the discussion of current on-farm
issues. It will look at immunity and, specifically, the prevention of calf
scours, acidosis, respiratory diseases and protozoal infections as well as the
impact of nutrition on calf health.

“Despite advances in calf pathology,
calf mortality remains unacceptably high in many dairy herds. Our collaboration
with Alltech and the École nationale vétérinaire d’Alfort represents an
important development in calf health and nutrition”, said Philippe Choquet,
director of the Institut Polytechnique LaSalle Beauvais.

Jean-Paul Mialot, director of the École nationale vétérinaire d’Alfort said, “We
are pleased to be involved in this important and timely symposium which will
advance practical solutions in the area of calf nutrition and pathology”.
Alltech’s European Ruminant Manager, Sylvie Andrieu, further added, “This is an
excellent opportunity for industry and two major centres of academic excellence
to work together on an area that is of increasing concern to the dairy
