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...

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...

Pneumonia of calves is a respiratory disease caused by the entry of bacteria and respiratory viruses into the body of calves, which occurs at the age of two to five months, and is more common in closed places and in the winter season. The best prevention of this pneumonia disease in calves is to give colostrum to calves. ...

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...

Post-calving care for cattle is a critical phase in dairy farming that significantly impacts the health and productivity of both cows and their offspring. Proper care during this period is essential to ensure a smooth transition from pregnancy to lactation and to prevent potential complications. In this article, we will delve into the key aspects of post-calving care for cattle and why it is of utmost importance. Understanding the Significance of Post-Calving Care Calving...

Introduction Milk yield of a dairy cow depends on four main factors: (a) genetic ability; (b) feeding program; (c) herd management; and (d) health. As cows continue to improve genetically, we must also improve nutrition and management to allow the cow to produce to her inherited potential. A good dairy feeding program must consider the quantity fed, the suitability of the feed and how and when the feeds are offered. Dry Matter...

An article dealing with this topic was recently published in the prestigious journal of the dairy industry, Journal of Dairy Science (Espinoza-Sandoval et. al., JDS 106: 2023). The article examines, using a statistical model, the feasibility of investing in cooling the cows in the summer in various countries around the Mediterranean Sea (Europe, North Africa and the Middle East), where there are different “climate zones” regarding dairy farming. The model presented in this...

When talking about the negative impact of heat stress on milk production, we usually refer to the impact on milk volume (liters per cow per day or per lactation). The reality is that this is only part of the problem, which causes economic losses to farmers and dairy industry. As will be presented in this article, heat stress negatively affects milk fat and protein content and reduce milk quality, by increasing milk Somatic Cell Count (SCC) and bacterial count. In some cases, especially in...

Dear All, My friend is facing a problem on dairy farm..there is Watery Nasal Discharge,Hypersalivation,Normal temp.Milk production was slightly decreased but now its normal.Initially one of the aborted cows started showing these signs but that was high temp. and after that all other are showing these signs but with normal temp. please guide me what could be the possibilities and ways to manage this. feeding components are Silage,Green fodder,vanda,Gluten,mineral and soda...

Heat stress (HS) is well known to negatively influence dairy cow’s wellbeing, health and productivity. Heat stress is a multi-billion-dollar global problem. It impairs cow’s performance during summer when cows are exposed to high ambient temperatures, direct and indirect solar radiations, and high humidity. While significant developments have been achieved over the last few decades to mitigate the negative impact of HS, such as physical modification of the environment to protect...

A lot of information has been published in the last decades, dealing with the negative effect of summer heat stress on the productive and reproductive traits of the high yielding cow. Very limited information existed however, up until the last years, on the effect of heat stress on the feed efficiency of cows (as estimated by the feed to milk ratio). Knowing the full extent of the economic losses caused to the cows due to heat load can help to present to the dairy farmers...

I opened my own farm last year in North India. I have a herd of 150 HF cows and I bought all the cows in advanced pregnancy stages. I had good results in calving and milk. Then we started the AI of them as per the normal practice i.e. as per the visible heat and also used synchronization using protocols based on receptals. Now I have 10 cows which are not getting pregnant and are almost at the point of being dry. So neither I can sell them (nobody would buy them)...
