Phibro Animal Health Corporation announces the launch of its new podcast series, “You Herd Right,” available now from the Apple Store, Google Podcasts, Spotify and other popular podcast platforms. 

A lot of planning goes into preparing cows for a successful lactation and feeding and management decisions are paramount to an operation’s success. The “You Herd Right” podcast series is hosted by Ken Zanzalari, Ph.D., Dipl. ACAN, Product Director, Phibro Animal Health Corporation, and opens by exploring areas of transition cow feeding and management in order to best prepare dairy cows for a successful lactation. Veterinarians, nutritionists, farm managers and herdspeople alike can gain insights to help improve the success of their dairy operation.

“We created the ‘You Herd Right’ podcast as a way of not only communicating our recommendations for feeding and managing transition cows but also as a way to bring the industry updates on research, exchange best practices and offer alternative strategies to consider,” Zanzalari explains.


Episode 1 – What is compensated metabolic acidosis, how does it affect calcium metabolism of the prepartum dairy cow, and how can it help decrease health events such as hypocalcemia? 
Episode 2  – A dairy nutritionist recommends mineral guidelines for formulating a fully acidogenic, high-calcium diet and the biological reasons for each recommendation.

•    Episode 3 (Release date: December 2022) – A review of learnings from several recent prepartum dietary cation-anion difference (DCAD) studies and the critical role research plays in our understanding of feeding acidogenic diets.
•    Episode 4 (Release date: January 2023) – A panel of dairy experts outline important factors to consider when feeding a prepartum acidogenic diet. The panel shares their personal experiences working with dairy farms that have implemented fully acidogenic feeding programs. 
Each episode runs approximately 15 minutes. Listeners are encouraged to contact Phibro on Facebook or LinkedIn to submit questions, reviews or content ideas for future episodes. For more information, visit or call 217-257-8116 to talk to a Phibro representative.
