Kent Nutrition Group hosts training for dairy industry

Kent Nutrition Group (KNG) hosted nearly 100 dairy producers, nutritionists, and industry specialists at their inaugural KNG Dairy School held at Kent Corporation headquarters this week. The school entitled, Dedicated to Dairy, focused on transition cow nutrition and their crucial role in a dairy’s long-term success. Industry speakers shared their latest research findings and management protocols for moving these cows into milk production.

The conference program was intentionally balanced with science and practical on-farm management experience to ensure participants received a well-rounded update. Key dairy industry sponsors and the KNG Dairy Team are dedicated to dairy and ensuring continued success for our dairy customers.

“Success for dairies in the current market environment requires dairymen to have access to a team of experts and the understanding that herd performance depends on quality nutrition and cow care,” according to, Heather Hunt, KNG Dairy Technical Specialist and school organizer. “At Kent Nutrition Group, we realized an opportunity to become a true partner with our dairy customers by sharing our nutritional expertise and offering this unique training opportunity.”

Kent Nutrition Group understands a dairy’s financial success must be supported by a team effort. Increasing herd efficiency, health, and comfort can help lead to overall profitability. The KNG Dairy School was designed to help increase the knowledge level and skill sets of the KNG sales team, industry partners and dairy participants and achieved that goal in that it was awarded 12 continuing education units (CEUs) by the American Registry of Professional Animal Scientists (ARPAS).

“Being awarded the ARPAS CEUs for the KNG Dairy School validated the level of content that our meeting provided,” Hunt concluded. “KNG is proud to bring this level of training to our team and dairy partners.”
