Special Issue Information
Ruminant production systems and, more specifically, dairy production have been challenged to produce more milk with fewer natural resources, while also minimizing potential negative impacts on the environment. To achieve such a goal, improvements on nutrition, health, and genetics are required and must take place together. Hence, the objective of this Special Issue is to bring to light recent advances into any of these aspects, as well as nutrition and how the productivity of dairy operations has been improving over the years with the use of precise nutrition and feeding. In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.
