Danish dairy cows can reduce their climate footprints

Danish cows can leave a smaller impact on the environment in the future according to new research results from Aarhus University on feeding strategies and feedstuffs. The results were presented at a seminar on dairy cow nutrition held at Aarhus University’s research centre AU Foulum.

Scientists will evaluate the welfare of calves on organic and conventional dairy farms. 

The new project will investigate what it means for dairy cows suffering from mastitis to be housed in a sick pen.

Better cow and calf welfare the core of new project

Scientists at the Department of Animal Science, Aarhus University, will compare the welfare of calves on organic farms with that on conventional farms, and look at the effect of using sick pens on cows suffering from mastitis. The Danish Centre for Animal Welfare is supporting the two projects.

Aarhus University will be one of the parties investigating the sources of contagious mastitis and developing new effective control measures.

More research on contagious mastitis in dairy herds

The Milk Levy Foundation has granted 12.7 million Danish kroner to a new research project where scientists from Aarhus University will be one of the parties investigating the sources of contagious mastitis and developing new effective control measures.

Research model is a commercial farming success

SimHerd was started as a regular animal science research model at Aarhus University. But in 2010 the limited company SimHerd A/S was founded and four years on the model is so successful that a new shareholder has bought a majority stake in the company.

Cow diets tailored to individual yield potentials

Scientists are developing strategies for tailoring the allocation of concentrates to the individual cow. Such allocation may increase the cow's milk yield and significantly improve her feed efficiency and result in a better health, welfare, economy and environment.

Better animal welfare and robustness in future livestock systems

Integrated and well-designed organic livestock systems can improve the welfare and health not only of the farm animals but also the environment and the people who look after the animals.
