Balchem Corporation (NASDAQ: BCPC), in conjunction with the Florida Ruminant Nutrition Symposium, welcomes nutritionists to the expanded three-day conference Monday, February 2 through Wednesday, February 4 in Gainesville, Florida.

The expanded first day will now offer a transition cow mini-symposium sponsored by Balchem. The event will highlight three industry experts sharing their research studies and knowledge about metabolism and health in transition cows. Dr. Ric Grummer, Ruminant Technical Director at Balchem, kicks off the mini symposium, "Peripartum Metabolism and Health in Dairy Cows" on Monday at 1:00 p.m. The mini-symposium will wrap up with Balchem's Beer and Brats reception at 5:15 p.m.

"Each year we hope to grow the symposium in order to provide the latest research and information in the industry," explains José Eduardo P. Santos, Symposium Organizer. "In our twenty-sixth year, we thought the mini-symposium would be a great way to partner with an innovative company like Balchem and bring additional information to our attendees."
