The Animal Health & Production Compendium

Changes to Compendia distribution data: the distribution tables, maps and references in datasheets have been restructured to handle the data better for updating and align with a geographic standard. Further details are available on the About page.

Abstract

Confidence intervals are often used incorrectly to perform hypothesis tests in the biomedical sciences. In this paper, the confidence interval function is introduced. It is demonstrated that its use helps to prevent errors in inference caused by a reliance on null hypothesis significance testing,...

Abstract

The aim of this project was to develop a method that relies on animal-based indicators and data-driven metrics for assessing the health and welfare of the most common livestock species in Switzerland. Method development followed a uniform multi-stage process for all animal categories included....

Abstract

Bovine tuberculosis is a costly disease shared by cattle and badgers, and to reduce the infection in cattle some form of badger management would be necessary. Here we compare the results of a badger field trial where test-postive badgers are culled and test-negative badgers vaccinated (a TVR...

Abstract

Diseases and mortality early warning systems are warranted in the egg production industry. Tracking animal movement and resource occupancy using RFID sensor technology has the potential to create such early warning systems. In this study, we analysed a dataset of individual hens' behavioural time...

Abstract

We analysed the interplay between duck farm density and the vulnerability of the production system to highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) H5N8. To do so, we used a spatial mechanistic model, which was calibrated to reproduce the observed spatio-temporal distribution of outbreaks in France...

Abstract

The ability to identify through modelling the drivers of infection dynamics in livestock is essential to design adapted control measures. Yet, it requires to represent livestock management practices and their impact on population structure with a high level of detail, which often comes with the...

Abstract

Driven by the need for early disease-warning and the underexplored use of production data, a syndromic surveillance (SyS) system was developed using production data routinely collected in pig reproduction farms. Health-related indicators were created from the recorded data, and two different...

Abstract

To explain the infection dynamics of the current African swine fever (ASF) epidemic in Romania, a country with a preponderance of low-biosecurity backyard pig farms susceptible to spillover infection from wild boar hosts, a multihost spatio-temporal model was designed and fitted to current outbreak ...

Abstract

The first international modelling challenge in animal health - ASF Challenge - aimed to improve the collective capacity to predict large-scale pathogen spread between livestock and wildlife and to support public decision during health crises. We designed a realistic mechanistic model to mimic an...

Abstract

This research aimed to associate hormone use for reproductive diseases and heat induction with herd level reproductive performance. Hormone use, herd characteristics, and test-day recording data were obtained from 560 representative Dutch dairy herds from 2017 to 2019. Calving interval,...
