Abstract

A prognosis of the likelihood of insemination success is valuable information for the decision to start inseminating a cow. This decision is important for the reproduction management of dairy farms. The aim of this study was to develop a prognostic model for the likelihood of successful first ...

Abstract

Pig breeding in the Netherlands has been unmistakably transformed through the application of science and engineering. Artificial insemination, breeding indices, hybrid breeding: these innovations were developed in close cooperation with scientists and engineers, whilst natural mating and breeding...

Abstract

The normal time budgets of dairy cows are influenced by oestrus, with cows spending less time resting and eating but more time walking. Previous studies have shown that cows spend approximately 21% less time feeding where the day of oestrus is assumed to be the day of successful artificial ...

Abstract

Most dairy farmers are not certain whether immediate insemination or delaying the insemination is the best economic decision for a cow in oestrus. A model was developed for determining, based on herd and cow characteristics, the economic consequences of immediate or delayed insemination. The model...

Abstract

The development of pig production in Russia has been adversely affected by sanctions limiting imports of breeding stock, and by foreign exchange rates that have increased the costs of imported machinery and consumables used in the sector. Imports of breeding stock into Russia have also been...

Abstract

This article briefly discussed the science behind genomic selection and discussed some of the key issues that India would deal with upon implementing genomic selection for improving their cattle and buffaloes mostly for milk production as well as other economically important traits. Some of the...

Abstract

This contribution provides an overview of approaches to correlate sow fertility data with boar semen quality characteristics. Large data sets of fertility data and ejaculate data are more suitable to analyse effects of semen quality characteristics on field fertility. Variation in fertility in sows ...

Abstract

In order to obtain a more standardised semen motility evaluation, Varkens KI Nederland has introduced a computer assisted semen analysis (CASA) system in all their pig AI laboratories. The repeatability of CASA was enhanced by standardising for: (1) an optimal sample temperature (39°C); (2) an...

Abstract

Background: The aim of this study was to estimate the seroprevalence of Coxiella burnetii in dairy goat farms in the Netherlands and to identify risk factors for farm and goat seropositivity before mandatory vaccination started. We approached 334 eligible farms with more than 100 goats for serum...

Abstract

Since the 1980s, efforts have been made to develop sensors that measure a parameter from an individual cow. The development started with individual cow recognition and was followed by sensors that measure the electrical conductivity of milk and pedometers that measure activity. Some sensors like...
