A bovine practitioner with more than 40 years of experience, Corbett oversees approximately 60,000 animals in the United States, Mexico, Central America and South America on a production medicine program. He monitors calf management, heifer replacement programs, mastitis prevention and control, milking equipment evaluation, computer analysis of dairy records, reproductive efficiency, dairy management and nutrition.
The American Association of Veterinary State Boards granted one Registry of Approved Continuing Education (RACE) credit for this DCRC webinar. This provides veterinarians with a convenient continuing education opportunity.
During the May 6 webinar, Corbett will address these key topics:
- Heifer nutrition programs (proper protein to energy ratios) to help heifers reach their genetic potential for growth and future milk production
- Heifer management systems that foster increased milk production and longevity
- Formulate rations to maximize rumen microbial growth, which improves feed efficiency and optimizes amino acid balance and protein utilization
- Strategies to maximize dry matter intake
