AbstractFull Text

The ICAR Board has initiated a Sensor Devices Task Force (SD-TF) with the task to provide guidelines and methodology to help classify and qualify on-farm sensors and sensor data in relation to milk production. This to create better safeguards on their suitability for herd management and breeding...

AbstractFull Text

Recent research showed the usefulness of using estimated breeding values (EBV) for mid-infrared (MIR) based biomarkers in genetic improvement. A novel class of biomarkers was defined based on modelling responses of milk composition (e.g., mid-infrared (MIR) based) to stress expressed on continuous...

AbstractFull Text

This survey looks at the plausibility checks used at data capture of a few key data sets in milk recording organisations around the world. The aim of these checks is to keep the data integral, with no internal discrepancies. We found that the most important plausibility checks are almost universal, ...

Genetic evaluation beyond common economic traits are necessary in tropical sire summary. Thailand Tropical Holstein dairy cattle has been development for improvement of milk yield (MY), milk composition (Fat, Protein, SNF), SCC, days open under tropical environment for decades. Nowadays, there are...

AbstractFull Text

The number of dairy farms in the United States has seen a steady decrease from 70,375 herds in 2003 to 41,809 in 2016 while the number of dairy cattle has stayed relatively the same or even slightly increased from 9,103,000 milking cows in 2001 to 9,328,000 in 2016. Wisconsin statistics mirror the...

AbstractFull Text

Partial least square (PLS) models were developed from Fourier transform mid-infrared (MIR) spectra, externally validated, and are being used commercially in the US for direct measurement of: * Groups of milk fatty acids [i.e., de novo (DN), mixed origin (MO), and preformed fatty (PF) acids] * Fatty ...
