Abstract

Apart from the active substance Ivermectin, little is known regarding the ecotoxicology of antiparasitic drugs in the dung of ruminants. In order to assess the environmental risk of other macrocyclic lactones, new test methods should be developed at different levels (laboratory, semi-field, field...

Abstract

This contribution reviews the fundamental principles of some important methods for the emergency killing of cattle, small ruminants, pigs and horses outside the slaughterhouse. Details for these species are given in the contributions of KHOL et al. (2015), UNTERWEGER et al. (2015) and HINTERHOFER...

Abstract

Introduction: During the last years an increased interest has been observed in establishment of techniques for automatic lameness detection in dairy cows. One of these techniques is the accelerometry. Material and methods: In 16 non-lame and clinically sound Simmental (Fleckvieh) cattle (<6.5 years old), 3D-acceleration data were collected using an accelerometer fixed on the skin over the sacrum during walk. Following this baseline measurement, a 19 mm high plastic block was attached on a randomly selected inner hind claw in 14 out of 16 cows before locomotion was scored and measured again. The RMS (root mean square) value as well as mean minimum (gMin) and mean maximum (gMax) acceleration were evaluated and a forecast model for score 1 (non-lame) was calculated. Results: The evaluation of the acceleration data of the x, y and z axes of non-lame cows revealed a regular and constant curve progression. Cows with the block attached showed a locomotion score of 1 (not lame). However, a hardly noticeable asymmetry at walk was found, although no flexion of the back could be noticed. There was a significant increase (p<0.05) in gMin in the vertical direction. Other parameters increased but were not statistically significant. The forecast model classified all 16 animals as sound (free of lameness). After attachment of the block, 11 out of 14 cows (78.6%) were classified as sound again. Conclusion: No significant differences were found for clinical lameness scoring and for the acceleration data of cows before and after attaching a block. The collected 3D-acceleration data of physiological movement in non-lame cows during walk provided a homogeneous set of data, which seems suitable for comparison with data of lame cows.

Abstract

Feeding high proportions of hay to dairy cows and research regarding the feeding value of hay has declined due to the strong implementation of ensilage. The market segment of milk and dairy products from cows fed without silage (grass-based diets, "hay milk") is of major importance in the Austrian...
