MetadataShow full item record
Udder healthiness seems to be under pressure at farms milking with an automatic milking system (AMS). Although is would be possible to reach and hold a low Bulk Milk Somatic Cel Count (BMSCC) and a low incidence of mastitis, some experts in the field warn that a reasonable part of al farms, milking with AMS, have problems with udder healthiness. Sound knowledge is still limited for advice on udder health in the growing numbers of farms with automatic milking systems (AMS). More knowledge about risk factors specifically on an AMS farm is needed. To reach this goal, the Dutch Udder Health Centre (UGCN) started a research project. The objective of this study is to improve the knowledge on risk factors for udder health when milking with an AMS. The focus in this research will be on the impact of management on udder health.
