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

Dairy cattle require healthy, functional udders to produce high-quality food for human consumption. Consumers also expect their food to be produced in a manner that safeguards animal health and welfare. Clinical and subclinical mastitis are the most frequent and costly diseases associated with...

AbstractFull Text

International genetic trend study in Brown Swiss bulls has revealed the largest changes in genetic trend direction for somatic cell count (SCC) (Gorjanc et. al., 2011). Somatic cells in milk are represented by epithelial cells and leukocytes (immune cells), where the latter predominate and in case...

AbstractFull Text

Recent research showed the usefulness of using estimated breeding values (EBV) for mid-infrared (MIR) based biomarkers in genetic improvement. Similarly, research has also shown that genetic variation is contained in the absorbance traits along the MIR band of wavelengths. Targeted extraction of...

AbstractFull Text

Continuing price pressures on milk, as well as consumer demands for quality products from healthy animals, result in increasing interest in novel traits for breeding programs but also for optimization of herd management to reduce costs. To facilitate improved herd management, easier access and...

AbstractFull Text

The objective of this work is to provide an overview on (a) the validation and certification of FOSS's milk analysers, (b) working with FTIR technology/data and standardisation as part of quality assurance as well as (c) quality assurance for new milk-testing parameters. Besides extensive internal...

AbstractFull Text

The new CombiFossTM 7 DC is the latest generation milk analyser from FOSS. The instrument allows to test raw milk for up to 19 parameters, including the new Differential Somatic Cell Count (DSCC) parameter, simultaneously at a speed of up to 600 samples per hour. DSCC represents the proportion of...

AbstractFull Text

Currently, programmes for monitoring udder health in the frame of dairy herd improvement (DHI) testing are based on the analysis of somatic cell counts (SCC). However, mastitis remains the most prevalent and costly disease in the dairy cattle industry worldwide. Approximately 70 to 80% of the...
