AbstractFull Text

New information is shared amongst the farmer members of ProAgria discussion groups by applying and analysing research results, participating in study trips, both within Finland and abroad, and testing the functionality of new ideas in practice at farm level. During the year, the groups gather to...

AbstractFull Text

Grassland plays an important role in mitigation of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the agricultural sector by sinking carbon (Soussana et al., 2010). Thus, grazing is often essential for maintenance of grassland. Furthermore, grazing has demonstrated positive effects on animal welfare,...

Abstract

Long term studies (1989-) on an organic dairy farm show decreasing topsoil concentrations of extractable phosphorus (P-AL), and a low P surplus on farm level. The average P-AL value, 100 mg kg-1 dry soil is still above optimal (70 mg), but has decreased by more than 50% since 1989. Perennial ley...

AbstractFull Text

Behavioural activities and milk production of dairy cows are affected by their health status. This study shows the potential of using real-time monitoring of behavioural activities and milk yield production as indicator of health status of individual dairy cows. The study was carried out on a...

Abstract

The Stable School approach was developed in Denmark, partly inspired by the Farmer Field School approach from the Global South, and based on a common goal to phase out antibiotics through improved animal health and welfare in the herds. It is an approach based on the idea that farmers give each...

AbstractFull Text

Using an AMS (Automatic Milking System) to obtain a good milk quality with low total bacterial count (TBC) in the bulk milk can be a challenge, but is manageable. A pre-survey within the AMS farms in Iceland, which had the lowest TBC in the bulk milk, showed that there are many similarities with...

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

In Finland milk and beef contribute 50% of the agricultural gross return. The growing season is short, 125-180 days, and therefore the indoor period plays a major role relative to the grazing season. This leads to high capital costs for production (winter-proof housing systems, forage and slurry...

AbstractFull Text

Dairy and beef systems are linked to each other. Therefore the potential for environmental improvement of these systems has to be analysed jointly. In this study, future environmentally sustainable supply chains for milk and beef were created using best practice and results from the best quartile...
