Cooling the cows through a combination of wetting and forced ventilation is the most common method in the world today. I estimate that more than 80% of the cows that are currently cooled in the world are cooled by this method. Today we know very well what is required to cool the cows properly, in terms of the "wetting quality", air speed and the time required for cooling during the day and throughout the year. In this article, I would like to describe how was developed the knowledge on...

1. Introduction Increased atmospheric emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs), such as nitrous oxide (N 2 O), carbon dioxide (CO 2 ), and methane (CH 4 ), are the primary cause of climate change. These emissions result in unpredictable and erratic rainfall, floods, and droughts [1]. In 2020, agriculture contributed 5865.47 MtCO 2 e, representing 12.34% of its total emissions (47,513.15 MtCO 2 e), including land-use change and forestry...

Monitoring and transmitting in real time and continuous manner the body temperature of the cows has become a reality these days. This can improve the effectiveness of cooling treatments given to the cows, with all the benefits that can arise from that. The following article presents the knowledge and experiences accumulated in the last years in Israel, based on monitoring cow's body temperatures, using intravaginal data loggers. In one of my first cooling projects, carried out on a...

Global warming and the constant increase in cow yields aggravate the summer problem on dairy farms and increase the production losses caused to dairy producers. An important part of the losses caused is due to the negative effect of heat load on the fertility of cows that are inseminated in summer. To characterize this effect, we collected data from five large-scale, high-yield dairy farms (1,500 to 3,000 dairy cows per herd) located in the "Laguna" region of northern Mexico, characterized...

Global warming and the constant increase in cow’s milk yield exacerbate the summer problem in dairy farms and increase the production loss caused to milk producers. In order to quantify these losses, I collected data from five large scale high yielding dairy farms (1,500 to 3,000 cows per herd), located in the Torreon region, north Mexico, characterized by a desert climate, with close to 180 stressful days, where cows are exposed to heat stress conditions. Despite the desire to compare...

Matheus Paez Martins Narciso (University of Alberta)       Although the importance of pH and short-chain fatty acids on rumen development are well known, their impact on the small and large intestine are unclear. This study investigated the effects of ruminal short-chain fatty acid concentrations ([SCFA]) and pH on the rumen and intestine of calves. Holstein bull calves (n = 32) were individually housed and fed milk replacer (900 g/d) twice daily and calf...

Brian Aldridge (University of Illinois)       Biological health is a complex topic of discussion and is often misunderstood as existing as a binary state in terms of the presence or absence of disease. In many ways, it is useful to explain health at a population or system level as the existence of individuals in 1 of 3 states: those in a healthy condition, those with a prediseased status, and those in a diseased state. At a systems level, it is useful to...

Mohamed Donia (University of Illinois)      Ruminant neonates rely on colostral immunoglobulin and nutrients to support health, welfare, and performance, by protecting against infectious disease and providing early life resilience. Recent evidence suggests that transferred colostral cells also contribute to neonatal immunity under controlled experimental conditions. This study provides evidence that colostral cells enhance neonatal resilience to routine,...

Summer heat stress is currently one of the biggest causes of economic losses to the global dairy industry, especially in the hot regions of the world. The International Dairy Federation (IDF) decided to deal with the problem and established recently an expert's committee to examine the issue and recommend ways to deal with it at the global level. After being recommended by the Israeli Dairy Board to participate in this committee, I found myself serving in a central role in...

1. Introduction Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the top 10 global threats to public health and is thought to be partly driven by the widespread use of antibiotics in food-producing animals (WHO, 2021). Globally, a greater proportion of the tonnage of all antibiotics sold are for use in food-producing animal sectors compared to for use in humans (Van Boeckel et al., 2017). In 2017, an estimated 93 million kilograms of active ingredient were sold worldwide for use in...

INTRODUCTION The profitability of dairy farms is an increasing concern in many economies around the world (Ellis et al., 2020; Ojo et al., 2020). This is the result of continuous economic, political, social, and environmental factors affecting different countries and regions (O’Leary et al., 2018; Ramsbottom et al., 2021). Therefore, dairy farmers are continuously searching and updating strategies and technologies that can improve the dairy farm technical and economic...
