AbstractFull Text

The present paper describes how NorFor has been updated with a climate module that integrates GHGE from animals and feed production. Examples are given on how much carbon footprint (CFP) on milk can be reduced from different rations/feedstuffs to lactating cows. In order to investigate what the CFP ...

Abstract

Vaccines can reduce the severity of mastitis caused by among others E. coli. However, vaccine success relies on proper diagnostics. This study examines the accuracy of E. coli-diagnostics in veterinary clinics in Denmark. The results show a need for increased diagnostic accuracy in mastitis control.

AbstractFull Text

In this study we evaluated the effects of gradual transitioning from indoor winter-feeding to outdoor grazing, 8 to 11 h daily, on methane emission and milk yield in an organic Jersey herd in Denmark. A total of 151 mixed-parity lactating Jersey cows with free access to automated milking stations...
