The Iowa State University Extension and Outreach Dairy Team has implemented a monthly webinar series. The first program “Gearing Up for 6.5 pounds of solids per hundredweight” featured a presentation by Dr. Mike Hutjens, Professor Emeritus at University of Illinois.

“With the record high protein component prices, many producers have focused on increasing protein percentages in their milk, but Hutjens will discuss increasing total solids, shooting for 6.5 pounds per hundredweight,” said Fred M. Hall, dairy program specialist with ISU Extension and Outreach.
