The Future of Probiotics; August 18, 2021, 4 to 6 p.m. EDT

Probiotic bacteria, particularly lactobacilli, play an important role in human health. Recently, the lactobacilli taxonomy underwent extensive revision, including the addition of 23 new genera, which will have a significant impact on future research and regulatory approaches. Fermented dairy products are an important delivery system for probiotic cultures. The pairing of probiotic cultures with fermented dairy products appears to have synergistic benefits for gut health and allows new opportunities for optimization. In addition, prophages have been shown to play an important role in the ecology of probiotic cultures in vivo. In this symposium, we will explore recent developments in understanding Lactobacillus taxonomy, the role of prophages, and the synergism of probiotic cultures and milk and the effect of this synergism on activity in the human digestive tract.

Equids Milk Production: Scientific Challenges and Perspectives; September 15, 2021, 4 to 6 p.m. EDT

In the last 40 years, there has been growing interest from the scientific community in milk quality and milk processing at the farm level in dairy production from mares and jennies, as well as the effects of equid dairy products on human health (e.g., microbiome, immunity, cancer, infectious diseases, skin disorders). This symposium aims to furnish an overall analysis on knowledge in this area and highlight the scientific challenges in terms of improving milk production from both a quantitative and a qualitative point of view (e.g., milking management, suckling foal management, feeding management, animal welfare, genetic selection), implementing processing techniques to ensure longer shelf life, and increasing dairy product variability on the market through scientifically sound studies of the effects on human health.

Advances in Enteric Methane Mitigation in Dairy Cattle - The Last Decade and Future Prospects September 21, 2021; 3:00 - 5:00 pm EDT

Lactation Biology: Mammary Gland Immunity and Health; October 5, 2021, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. EDT

The mammary gland is a modified skin gland and thus plays a role in the innate immune system; moreover, the adaptive immune response is important during development and health. Understanding mammary immunity and how management, nutrition, genomics and environment affect it will enhance health, production and welfare of the dairy cow.

FASS Science Policy Committee: The 2023 Farm Bill-Perspectives and Priorities for Animal Research; October 12 and 13, 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. EDT

Forages and Pastures Symposium: October 19; 3:00 - 5:00 PM EDT
