Breakout Sessions

Location: Convention Center Meeting Rooms 8-9

Feed hygiene is a critical factor when providing for your herd. Join Phibro Animal Health Corporation as they sponsor two speakers to address this important issue. Dr. Lon Whitlow will address how to manage a mycotoxin issue on a dairy farm with his presentation, “Defeating Mycotoxin Problems”. Dr. John Goeser will address the impact of pathogens in feeds with his presentation “Feed Hygiene Impact – Merging Veterinary and Nutritional Science”.  Both thought leaders will be available for questions at the close of their presentations.

Dr. John Goeser grew up in the dairy industry as his family’s dairy near Plymouth, Wisc., grew from 60 head in the 1980s to now over 1,000 cows.
