Speaker : Dr Emma Redfern – Feeding the Transition Cow
Kindly sponsored by LLM Farm Vets
Emma has worked with cows since she was a teenager, working on farms while she completed her degree in business and law. After graduating, Emma worked as a vet tech before going on to complete a Master’s degree in ruminant nutrition whilst working for a feed firm as Youngstock Product Manager. Emma moved on to complete a PhD in transition cow management, looking specifically at the social factors of why transition cow management is suboptimal on many farms. Emma is now an independent nutritionist and transition cow management is still her favourite subject! She farms alongside her husband and their 7-month-old son on a rented Staffordshire county farm, where they have a flying herd and milk 265 Holsteins who average around 10,500 litres.
Emma will also be announcing the results of our silage competition!
