Abstract

The innovations developed by scientists working on animal welfare are often not adopted in practice. In this paper, we argue that one important reason for this failure is that the solutions proposed do not adequately address the societal concerns that motivated the original research. Some solutions ...

Abstract

BW of replacement heifers is rarely measured on commercial farms, making it difficult to evaluate the success of management practices related to calf growth. Our aims were to describe variability among commercial farms in Holstein heifer BW, determine how BW differences varied with management and...

Abstract

Ketosis is a common disease in dairy cattle, especially in the days after calving, and it is often undiagnosed. The objective of this study was to compare the standing behavior of dairy cows with and without ketosis during the days around calving to determine if changes in this behavior could be...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine if, and under what conditions, indoor-housed dairy cows would seek a shelter to calve. Seventy-two Holstein dairy cows were paired by expected calving date and moved into a maternity pen that contained an open area with no cover and a sheltered area that was...

Abstract

The objectives of this study were: (1) to describe the rumination and feeding behavior of freestall-housed Holstein dairy cows in the weeks around parturition, and (2) to determine the relationship between postpartum disease and precalving rumination and feeding behavior. Eighty cows were enrolled...

Abstract

This cross-sectional survey aimed to verify farmers' awareness and knowledge about lameness in grazing dairy cows and to analyze their perspectives and actions intended to control this issue. Farms (n=44, mean herd size: 42, SD=11.2) located in southern Brazil were visited twice in 2015. On the...

Abstract

The objective of this study was to determine if data derived from a system that electronically monitors feeding behavior could be used to identify competitive interactions of dairy cows at the feed bunk. A short interval between successive feeding events of 2 cows at 1 feed bin was predicted to be...

Abstract

There is limited information available on what is the most appropriate feeding method for growing dairy heifers. The objective of this study was to determine the effect of feeding method on the feeding behavior and diet selection of growing dairy heifers. Six prepubescent Holstein heifers...

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine whether haptoglobin (Hp) could be used as a predictive measure for metritis. Cattle were grouped into 3 health categories based on the condition of vaginal discharge and body temperature after calving: severe metritis (n=12), mild metritis (n=32), and...

Abstract

There is a need for improved methods of detecting illness among group-housed milk-fed calves. In 4 separate experiments, we examined whether illness in group-housed dairy calves fed with an automated milk feeder changed their feeding behavior, and whether these changes were affected by low (n=26)...
