Dietary factors influencing fiber digestibility in dairy cattle with Dr. Barry Bradford
The costs of the feed ration account for approximately 60% of all the variable costs involved in milk production of dairy cows.
Laboratory assays quantifying fibre digestibility can be used to help predict the ability of dairy cows to consume additional feed, which ultimately impacts milk production.
Dr. Barry Bradford from Michigan State University conducts research focused on dairy cattle nutrition and metabolism, with a particular emphasis on attempting to translate novel findings in fundamental metabolic physiology to practical applications in animal agriculture.
During his presentation entitled “Dietary factors influencing fiber digestibility in dairy cattle" he discussed important nutritional strategies to improve fiber digestibility, including the impact of trace mineral source on ruminal fiber digestibility.
The video of this webinar will soon be available.

Dr. Bradford completed dual BS degrees at Iowa State University and a doctorate in animal nutrition at Michigan State University. He served on the faculty at Kansas State University from 2006 to 2019, and in 2020 he returned to Michigan State University as the Clint Meadows Chair in Dairy Management.

Making sustainable dairy farming profitable
Science-based solutions for optimum dairy performance
Adding Selko LactiBute to the ratio increases milk production while increasing fat and protein levels at the same time. This results in an increase of Energy Corrected Milk of 0.85-1 kg per head per day.
IntelliBond’s increased bioavailability and the positive impact on fibre digestion and gut barrier function support well-being and optimizes animal productivity of dairy cows.
SELKO TOXO & TOXO-XL
Selko TOXO® is a mycotoxin mitigation product that contains bentonite, which has strong binding capacity for aflatoxins, ergot toxines and LPS, in combination with glucose biopolymers which maintain gut tight junctions to reduce the translocation of mycotoxins into blood stream. Selko TOXO-XL® combines this with purified β-glucans that improve the immune function of dairy cows.
Selko TMR® is a blend of organic acids that reduces the growth of yeasts, moulds and bacteria such as Enterobacteriaceae like Salmonella. As a result of the reduction in growth of micro-organisms, increases in temperature of the TMR are delayed by at least 6 hours in silages treated with Selko-TMR, resulting in a higher dry matter intake.
Even the best heat stress control programme cannot always fully prevent problems with heat stress in dairy cows. Supplementation with Selko NutriCool can help to avoid a drop in dry matter intake and loss of milk production as a result of heat stress.
Farm-O-San Glucolac 40 Plus provides glucogenic energy and reduces the risk of subclinical or clinical ketosis in dairy cows.
Farm-O-San Reviva is a highly palatable post calving drink for dairy cows, with large amounts of energy and calcium. It reduces the risk of hypocalcaemia and milk fever in dairy cows.
