On the 5th and 6th of December last year, the Animal Nutrition R&D teams from the CMI presented three scientific studies at the 3R event, an international francophone conference on research in ruminant species. Whether in the fields of nutrition, animal wellbeing, genetics, farming or animal health, all the latest scientific advances are on display at the event.
Among these were the presentations by the CMI, with an oral presentation by Pierre Gaignon, a young doctoral researcher at the INRA in St-Gilles. His work on the effect of restrictions of calcium input during the beginning of lactation aimed to understand the role this mineral plays in milk production, and on bone metabolism in dairy cows.
Two other scientific studies were also presented via posters at the event:
• Poster 1: From in vitro to in vivo: effect of Mix 3.0 on ruminate fermentation, and effect of Qualix on dairy cows’ performance and environmental impact;
• Poster 2: Effect of macro-algae seasonality on in vitro rumen fermentations.
Having opened in 2016, the Animal Nutrition laboratory at the CMI Roullier has once again proven its capacity for dynamic inventiveness, offering innovative solutions for ruminants.
