THIS CONFERENCE IS SOLD OUT
ARPAS has assigned 17 ARPAS CEU's for ARPAS members participating in the 29th Discover Conference
The topic of Amino Acid Requirements of Dairy Cattle is viewed as 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. Conference topics include amino acid supply and requirements, overview of current amino acid models, microbial protein contribution to metabolizable amino acids, specifics of feeding low-protein diets, and environmental implications of amino acid nutrition.
Registration postmarked by April 26, 2015 is $375.00 for ADSA-ASAS-ARPAS members and $425.00 for non-members, which includes sessions and most meals. After April 26, the registration fee will be $475.00 member/$525.00 non-member, and will be accepted on an availability basis.
