AbstractFull Text

Fourier-transform mid-infrared (FTIR) milk spectra data is routinely collected within milk recording programs of different countries. This information can be used both for assessing milk composition and for genetic evaluations. Establishing an optimal strategy for the use of spectra data in genetic ...

AbstractFull Text

Reticulo-rumen sensor data were used for estrus prediction in Gir heifers. Temperature-sensing reticular boluses were orally administered to 60 heifers, and the ruminal temperature (RRT) and animal activity were recorded every 10 minutes. The cows were synchronized using a hormonal protocol....

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...
