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

The ICAR Recording Guidelines include provision for on-line milk analysis. However the guidelines are inconsistent with some of the practical realities of on-line milk analysis. Consequently, no milk analyser has been able to achieve ICAR approval to date. In the case of somatic cell count (SCC),...

AbstractFull Text

On-line somatic cell count (SCC) analysers automatically test for SCC during milking for individual cows, providing farmers with more measurements than conventional herd testing. The purpose of this study was to determine whether more frequent milk sampling increases detection of elevated SCC due...

AbstractFull Text

This study was conducted to test the hypothesis that a combination of more frequently, but less accurately analysed milk components should give a more representative measure of a cow′s longer term milk composition than a DHIA sample taken once per month. Systematic biases with respect to stage of...

AbstractFull Text

DHI organizations conduct testing for herd management and genetic improvement on over 27 million cows worldwide. This presents a valuable opportunity to labs, veterinarians and producers for additional testing of parameters such as infectious disease and pregnancy diagnosis. Chemical pregnancy...

Abstract

Milk, particularly from ruminants, constitutes a major dietary component throughout the world. Because of that producers and processors are constantly searching for novel methods of management that improve yield, animal health, and milk quality. Therefore, mastitis treatment, control and...
