  1. 1. Pasture related characteristics and management strategies associated with udder health in farms with an automatic milking system : impact on somatic cell count and milking frequency

    Uppsats för yrkesexamina på avancerad nivå, SLU/Dept. of Clinical Sciences

    Författare :Emma Laufors; [2022]
    Nyckelord :somatic cell count; milking interval; automatic milking system; udder health; heat stress; pasture strategies; preventative measures;

    Sammanfattning : Udder health plays a central role in the dairy industry and poor udder health can entail both negative economic and animal welfare consequences as well as increased antimicrobial use. The somatic cell count (SCC, a commonly used measurement of udder health) has been observed to increase during the summer season both in Sweden and in other countries. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Time budgets of dairy cows in cow-calf contact system with automatic milking

    Master-uppsats, SLU/Dept. of Animal Nutrition and Management

    Författare :Teresa Johansson; [2021]
    Nyckelord :Dairy cows; Time budget; AMS; Cow-calf contact;

    Sammanfattning : Time budgets of dairy cattle are useful to determine the amount of time the cows can allocate to all the behaviours throughout the day. In an automatic milking system (AMS), time budgets are of interest as the individuals are able to choose how to spend the majority of their time, besides the time in the milking robot, and can be used to ensure adequate amounts of time are spent on essential behaviours, such as lying and eating.

  3. 3. Voluntary cow traffic in AMR : with or without teaser feed at milking

    Master-uppsats, SLU/Dept. of Animal Nutrition and Management

    Författare :Elin Ratcovich; [2021]
    Nyckelord :automatic milking rotary; cow traffic; teaser feed;

    Sammanfattning : A common automatic milking system (AMS) is the single box AMS, designed for 60 to 70 cows per unit (Bach & Cabrera, 2017), but there is also the automatic milking rotary (AMR; DeLaval Automatic Milking Rotary – AMRTM, Tumba, Sverige) with 24 bails and a higher capacity (Kolbach et al., 2013; Jacobs & Siegford, 2012a).

  4. 4. Describing patterns of mastitis indicators during a clinical mastitis episode

    Master-uppsats, SLU/Dept. of Clinical Sciences

    Författare :Ditsa Panchal; [2021]
    Nyckelord :CM; SCC; EC; LDH; sensor patterns; recovery phase;

    Sammanfattning : A total of three dairy farms, run on Automatic Milking System (AMS) and having on average 163, 177, and 99 lactating dairy cows respectively, were included in this study. Two of the farms were located in the Netherlands, and one in Canada. The data was retrieved from the database of DeLaval International AB (Tumba, Stockholm). LÄS MER

  5. 5. Short and long-term effects on the teat tissue in a Cow Calf Contact system with automatic milking

    Master-uppsats, SLU/Dept. of Animal Nutrition and Management

    Författare :Johanna Lilja; [2021]
    Nyckelord :teat end callosity; hyperkeratosis; teat wall thickness; ultrasound; suckling; nursing;

    Sammanfattning : The interest in keeping calves with their lactating dams in dairy production is increasing, among both dairy farmers and consumers. This MSc thesis is a part of an ongoing project at the Swedish University of Agriculture (SLU) where a cow-calf contact system with automatic milking is studied. LÄS MER
