Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the dynamic landscape of dairy production, traditional methodologies are yielding ground to innovative approaches that prioritize sustainability and ethical considerations, encompassing not only production but also reproduction aspects within the dairy industry. With escalating concerns surrounding environmental impact and animal welfare, the exploration of alternative sources for dairy production has become imperative. This Special Issue of Dairy is dedicated to delving into the theme of "How Dietary Feeding Nutrients Effect Reproduction, Health, and Milk Production". We aim to comprehensively investigate the viability of these novel options within the context of dairy cattle nutrition and reproduction. Our aim is to assess their efficacy in meeting the multifaceted demands for productivity, reproductive efficiency, and profitability while simultaneously addressing sustainability challenges and elevating animal welfare standards. We welcome scholarly contributions that elucidate recent advances and insights in this dynamic intersection, foster knowledge dissemination, and facilitate the progression towards a more sustainable future in dairy production. Authors are invited to submit manuscripts exploring various facets of alternative dairy sources, from nutritional compositions to reproductive implications, contributing to the collective understanding of this evolving landscape.
