2020 Course Was Virtual!

Due to COVID-19, we were not able to host an in-person event in Ithaca this year. Instead, we hosted this event virtually with nearly 300 people tuning in from around the world.

Course Summary and Topics

The Dairy Nutrition Shortcourse and the Advanced Dairy Nutrition and Management Shortcourse are conducted in opposite years as a collaboration between Cornell University and Miner Institute with additional invited course faculty from other universities.

The Advanced Dairy Nutrition and Management Shortcourse is conducted in even calendar years at Cornell University. This shortcourse is designed primarily for experienced nutritionists and allied industry professionals seeking a more in-depth exposure to selected topics of emerging and continued interest relating to dairy cattle nutrition and management. The course is conducted primarily in a classroom setting and provides substantial opportunities for attendees to network with each other and with course faculty in informal settings.

Past Course Proceedings

Proceedings for the Dairy Nutrition Shortcourse are available for purchase. Materials from select courses are available in 3 ring binder format only at $75 each. Due to shipping charges, there is an additional $20 charge per item for shipping outside of the United States.
