Podcast: Maintaining a Healthy Ruminant Digestive Tract


The crew gathered at the Real Science Exchange again this week for a discussion of how to“Maintain a Healthy Ruminant Digestive Tract.” The pub conversation features our guest Dr. Brian Aldridge who works in Rural Animal Health Management at the College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Illinois. Hosting the conversation at the pub is Scott Sorrell, joined by Dr. Clay Zimmerman and Dr. Ken Sanderson from Balchem Animal Nutrition & Health.

Listeners who enjoy the Real Science Lecture Series may have heard from Dr. Aldridge earlier this year during his webinar. Watch that recording here: https://youtu.be/JoQl6NE-SZM.

A central theme for the discussion is how to adjust our thinking from being pathogen-centric to host-centric in response to health challenges; think of the whole animal rather than just a bug. Dr. Aldridge also answers questions posed from the lecture audience in January.

Pull up a chair, grab a drink and listen to Episode #9 of the Real Science Exchange.
