Dairy Cattle Nutrition

Hypothesis: The antimicrobial and antioxidant properties of kelp improve dairy cow health, and kelp's iodine is promptly transferred to milk resulting in iodine concentrations potentially toxic to children. This will be tested using two mechanisms:
1) Improve animal health and farm profitability by fine-tuning kelp supplementation.
2) Measure milk-iodine concentration through an industry-scale survey of organic retail milk in the Northeast.
