See the series of articles for quick reads on the biology of choline and how it aids in liver fat metabolism in dairy cows. The first (Ric Grummer) and second (Roselinde Goselink and Heather White) were published in December 2015 and the third article (Heather White) is expected to be published early in 2016.

Many UW Dairy Science graduate students spent the weekend learning about protein and amino acid metabolism. After 16-h of research-based lecture and discussion by several invited speakers and UW faculty, they are still smiling! Thank you to Adisseo for sponsoring the workshop!
Several of the White Lab members attended part or all of the Four-State Nutrition Conference. With record-breaking attendance there was a lot to learn and many people to meet!
I presented two talks:

Using the KetoMonitor to access cow and milk data to manage herd-level ketosis prevalence during the Thursday breakout sessions.
Proceedings and recorded presentations will be available soon in the On-Farm Resources Section!
