AbstractFull Text

As a common project of the five Nordic countries, a shared interface has been created for data exchange between farm management software and the national databases. Joining organisations only have to build the exchange between their own software and the interface. Main principles of the system are...

AbstractFull Text

The Nordic Holstein yield evaluation model describes all available milk, protein and fat test-day yields from Denmark, Finland and Sweden. In its current form all variance components are estimated from observations recorded under conventional milking systems. Also the model for heterogeneity of...

AbstractFull Text

Automatic milking Systems (AMS) have been practised for a number of years in Denmark, France and the Netherlands. During these years, combining automatic milking (AM) and pasture access for feeding has remained problematic. Grazing has, however, many benefits, both for farmers, animals, landscape,...

AbstractFull Text

Health recording in Finland started in 1982 according to a Norwegian model and slightly earlier than in Sweden and Denmark. Its principle is that veterinarians write treatments down on an individual cow health card and AI technicians collect the data at their next visit. Herd owners can also enter...

AbstractFull Text

Genetic parameters for nine udder conformation traits were estimated in first parity Danish Holstein cows by means of bi-variate linear animal models. The traits were either based on measures of teat coordinates from milking robots or linearly scored by professional classifiers. The heritabilities...

AbstractFull Text

Automated milking has been used in Denmark since the late 90's. Today more than 900 installations of robotic milking equipment (25% of milk produced in Denmark) are in use. A significant number has been bought by Dutch farmers moved to Denmark. After a slow introduction to Denmark, the sales peaked ...

AbstractFull Text

A survey carried out on 18 farms in Switzerland, Germany, Denmark and the Netherlands indicates current trends in cattle feeding. An increasing number of farms are relying on automatic feeding to ease their workload, save time and achieve flexibility. The farms surveyed were practical users of...

Abstract

The voluntary dry matter intake (DMI) of a cow is an important parameter in dairy farming; however, it cannot be measured directly for individual cows within a group, therefore a model is needed to estimate the individual cow DMI. In a previous study a DMI model-the '2004 Model'-was developed for...
