Full course description

Lactation, or milk secretion, is the ultimate endpoint of dairy production. Therefore, an understanding of mammary gland biology is critical to effective dairy management. In this course, we will explore the development, growth, and function of the mammary gland with particular emphasis on the dairy cow. Management and other influences on mammary function, both before and during lactation, will be discussed and interventions to improve the efficiency of milk production will be considered.

Instructor: Dr. Geoffrey Dahl
