Ruminal Dosing to Establish if M. elsdenii is a Causeative Agent of MFD
Check out this next segment from Dr. Paul J. Weimer, from the U.S. Dairy Forage Research Center, as he dives into his third segment of a four part series on Megasphaera elsdenii & Milk Fat Depression: A good bug gone bad. This is an evolving story, that will hopefully lead us to a solution that is a significant economic problem for the dairy industry.
What you will learn:
Dr. Paul Weimer received his BS in Biology from Carroll College (WI), and MS and PhD in Bacteriology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. After 10 years at the Central Research and Development Department at DuPont, he joined the USDA-ARS Dairy Forage Research Center in Madison, WI in 1988.
