Abstract

10 Holstein Dairy cows were used as experimental samples to find an optimal location for non-contact infrared thermometers to measure the body temperature of Holstein cows. The non-contact infrared thermometer was used to measure the rectum, inner thigh, nose, ear and back of dairy cows. The most...

Abstract

A survey was conducted to identify: (1) the number of dairy farms that train their heifers to the milking parlour prior to calving, (2) the reasons why farmers chose to train or not and (3) what training methods farmers use. The questionnaire was sent to 250 randomly selected dairy farmers within...

Abstract

The provision of palatable drinking water ad libitum for cattle is often neglected on farm and is considered difficult and impractical to monitor, particularly on an individual animal basis. The objective of this study was to validate an automated system for monitoring individual water intake and...

Abstract

Resistance to β-lactam antibiotics, including third-generation cephalosporins, is of major concern for animal and human health. In this study, extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL)/plasmid-mediated AmpC (pAmpC) β-lactamase-producing Escherichia coli isolates from German livestock farms were...

AbstractFull Text

The cryopreservation of the farm animal ooplasm is very useful in the conservation of female gametes. Since the use of histological assay alone is insufficient to assess the freezing-thawing process, the future oocyte developmental competence need to be validated by in vitro fertilization and...

Abstract

Genomic selection has led to opportunities for developing new breeding values that rely on phenotypes in dedicated reference populations of genotyped cows. In Australia, it has been applied to 2 novel traits: feed efficiency, which was released in 2015 as feed saved breeding values, and heat...
