Midwest Meeting Preview

Midwest Meeting Preview!

The 2019 ADSA-ASAS Midwest Annual Meeting  is fast approaching! Don’t miss out on the exciting Symposia at this year’s Meeting. Take a peek below for a preview of what’s to come during the David Baker Symposium on Monday, March 11!

The David Baker Symposium held on Monday, March, will start off with a historical perspective of amino acids in livestock. Keith Haydon will discuss how amino acid supplementation has changed over the last 40 years. This discussion sets the stage for the following presentation that will address the reduction of crude protein in diets when using supplemental amino acids. How far can crude protein be reduced? One of the Midwest Sections Young Scholars, Henrique Cemin, will discuss a meta-regression analysis used to predict branched-chain and large neutral amino acids effects on the growth and performance of pigs. David Cook proposes the use of amino acid supplementation in young pigs, however, more research is needed to further the knowledge base of the young animals’ requirements. To wrap up the David Baker Symposium, Yanbin Shen will discuss the opportunities amino acids have over their individual functions.
