  Introduction The compost bedded pack barn is a housing system for lactating dairy cows. It consists of a large, open resting area, usually bedded with sawdust or dry, fine wood shavings and manure composted into place and mechanically stirred on a regular basis. The most critical success factor for managing a compost bedded pack barn is providing a comfortable, dry resting surface for l ...

Introduction In India, current milk production is 163.7 million tones (DADF Annual Report, 2016-2017) Health and welfare of dairy animals is vital to ensure their longevity and long term productivity, to intensify the production, animal production systems are becoming highly mechanized. In recent years, efforts have been undertaken to improve welfare and overall-health of dairy cows by providing ...

Lorenzo Quesnel Yes. For sure. When the elevated SCC is due to a systemic disease such as those you mentioned, you see an elevation in all 4 quarters. If you use a CMT test, in most cases these quarters will not be higher than a CMT score of 1.

Mohamed Fawzy Elsawy I strongly disagree. Anyone that has done a necropsy on a chronically infected quarter with Staph aureus knows that the milk may look completely normal but the mammary tissue is full of scar tissue and abscesses. Also, Pseudomonas, Prototheca, Serratia, and many other organisms cause chronically infected quarters that have normal appearing milk.

Yes, this is very crucial to diagnose subclinical mastitis and its causative organism, preventing the infection to get in through teat canal, teat plugging may helpful, but descending infection which comes through body is a major challenge, which can only prevent by hygienic environment, good quality bedding, high level of nutrition especially in dry phase, which is always compromised in small dai ...

As mastitis can be of multi-focal origin, addressing route cause can differ among herds. In my opinion, multi-station studies are required to prove the efficacy of any product. Moreover, DIM (Days In Milk) can hugely influence SCC, selection of animals at their late, early or end-of-mid lactation phase can show slightly high somatic cell count (which is absolutely normal) and can be confused with ...

In a lecture I gave at the 29th Israel Dairy Conference, held in Jerusalem in November 2017, I presented the principles of my work in consulting dairy farms around the world on coping with negative effect of summer heat stress, and the achievements we reached in different countries due to the correct implementation of cow cooling methods. At the beginning of my lecture, I presented the basic condi ...

Clement,In Thailand condition I do recommend the direct cooling which combines wetting and forced ventilation. Anyhow, there is need to know specific farm conditions to give the exact recommendation about the time of cooling needed.

Heat stress are climate conditions where cows are not able to dissipate the heat they generate in their metabolism. Under these conditions cows will drop feed consumption and performance , including milk production and fertility. If you don't have this in your farm then you are lucky !

Dear Clement,Your proposal is limited to dry climates and close buildings. Unfortunately, most of the dairy farms in warm climates are located in humid areas and use open shelters, so, only direct cooling the cows by wetting and forced ventilation will be a good solution.
