Robert Berthiaume (Valacta), Gilles Bélanger (AAFC Quebec) and Gaëtan Tremblay (AAFC Sherbrooke). The webinar will be held from 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm EST and there is no cost to participating.

You can register online now.

If you missed the March webinar that was held in English, you can still watch online.

What is the webinar about?

Sugars, also known as non-structural carbohydrates (NSC), are an important source of readily available energy in forages. Increasing forage NSC has been shown to improve feed intake, milk yield, and nitrogen use efficiency in dairy cows and other ruminants. Scientists from Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada and Université Laval carried out various studies looking at increasing NSC in forages, including taking advantage of diurnal variations in NSC. Join this webinar to learn how to produce and use high NSC forages.
