Industry Event: Impact of Starter Starch Content on Pre-weaning Performance of Beef on Dairy Cross Calves webinar

March 5 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

I-29 Moo University to present “Impact of Starter Starch Content on Pre-weaning Performance of Beef on Dairy Cross Calves” webinar March 5

The I-29 Moo University 2024 Dairy Webinar Series continues Tuesday, March 5 from noon to 1 p.m. CDT. The webinar will feature a discussion on the impact of starter starch content on pre-weaning performance of beef on dairy cross calves with Taylor Klipp.

Rumen development is important for dairy-raised calves. Starch is a driver for weight gain and rumen development, but high-concentrate diets fed over an extended period increase the risk of acidosis and liver abscesses later in life. Beef × dairy calves are proving to be profitable for dairy farmers and a consistent product for packers. Klipp will show how to capitalize on this opportunity and dial in your management practices to efficiently raise quality beef × dairy calves.

Taylor Klipp is originally from Hanover, KS where she grew up raising calves on her family’s dairy farm. Besides the home farm, she has held multiple internship and part-time positions in calf barns on farms across Nebraska, Missouri, Iowa, and Ohio. Besides dairy experience, she interned for an Angus and SimAngus seed stock ranch in Kansas and plays a role in her fiancé’s Black Angus cow-calf operation in western Nebraska. Currently, Klipp is finishing up her Master of Animal Science at Iowa State under the direction of Dr. Gail Carpenter, with research focusing on Beef on Dairy calves. Following graduation, she plans to be a calf consultant in the Kansas-Nebraska area. Taylor is passionate about calves and enjoys finding the “why”.

There is no fee to participate in the webinar; however, registration is required at least one hour before the webinar. Register online at:
