Abstract

From data collected from farms equipped with automatic milking systems, the reduction of the milking sampling period from 8 to 24 hours was submitted and the consequences in terms of reliability of estimated daily yields was assessed. From 17 hours of sampling, an estimation of daily performances...

Abstract

Video imaging of cattle carcasses is a new technique that predicts the weight of various carcass cuts and specifies the true market value of the whole carcass on the abattoir slaughter line. Based on the field results of over 30 000 slaughter bulls, heritabilities and genetic correlations across...

Abstract

An automated biosensor system for detecting pregnancy and predicting ovulation in dairy cows was built and tested. The system automates the sampling of milk and the analysis of the milk by a deployment of a screen printed carbon electrode biosensor for progesterone. Test and calibration benchmarks...
