Introduction. In Zimbabwe, smallholder dairy farming developmental programmes were initiated in 1983 (Ngongoni et al. 2006; Muchenje et al. 2007). Their contribution to national-marketed milk increased gradually from 2% in 1998 and to an estimated 5% in 2002 (Ngongoni et al. 2006). Smallholder dairy farming has the potential to increase the milk production base of the country, improve household nutrition and empower rural communities with income-generating ventures. It can assist farmers to diversify, lessen farming risks and create an opportunity for use of idle forage (Ngongoni et al. 2006).. Shortage of and poor quality fodder have been reported to be two of the major limiting factors to smallholder dairy farming in the country (Ngongoni et al. 2007). Mastitis is another major limiting factor; it is a disease of dairy cattle that causes low milk production and high economic losses (Ericsson-Unnerstad et al. 2009; Tesfaye, Regasa & Kelay 2009). Mastitis is an inflammation of the mammary gland ...

Background: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and farming are two conditions that have been associated with an increased risk of anxiety and depression. Dairy farming is an independent risk factor for COPD. Objective: To test the hypotheses that the prevalence of anxiety and/or depression is higher in dairy farmers with COPD than in farmers without COPD, and higher in dairy farmers with COPD than in non-farmers with COPD. Methods: Anxiety and depression were evaluated using the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale in 100 dairy farmers with COPD (DF-COPD), 98 dairy farmers without COPD (DF-controls), 85 non-farming patients with COPD (NF-COPD) and 89 non-farming subjects without COPD (NF-controls), all identified by screening in the Franche-Comté region of France ...
In most countries in the Asian region, ruminant animals, particularly cattle and buffalo, have an important economic role in village farming systems to provide milk, draught power, manure, meat and hides. Milk is an important constituent in the diet of large populations in countries like India and Pakistan. Its value is being increasingly recognized in other countries in the region too. Increasing incorporation of milk in the diets of the people in the region focuses attention on the value of milk not only as a source of nourishment for the rural small scale producer but also as a source of supplementary income for them. High population densities in the region make it essential that the production systems should ensure the optimum utilization of scarce land resources, whether it be for production of food or other crops. In this context, the vast capacity of cattle and buffalo to convert crop residues and by-products into economically useful products has to be used to the best advantage of the small

The prosperity of the Australian dairy industry is underpinned by the profitability of the cows farmers milk. New breeding indices set an exciting path for genetic improvement in Australia. Developed by the National Breeding Objective (NBO) Task Force and driven by the Australian Dairy Improvement Scheme (ADHIS) after an extensive consultation process with dairy farmers from across all dairying regions, the NBO aims to deliver herds that the Australian dairy industry needs for the future. Three new breeding indices will be released from April 2015. The Balanced Performance Index (BPI) will replace the Australian Profit Ranking and aims to achieve farm profit through a balance of longevity, health, type and efficient production. Two additional indices will also be introduced to align with specific breeding philosophies, namely the Health Weighted Index (HWI) and the Type Weighted Index (TWI).. Officially launched at the Australian Dairy Industry Council (ADIC) Industry Leaders Breakfast, ADHIS ...

On dairy farms with high milk production there are much health problems. One of the most important periods, the critical time in dairy cows production is calving. In controlling and resolving of these problems the great role have the farmer and the veterinarian. There are many varied methods of dairy farms supervising. Diagnostic monitoring in herds of dairy cattle has an important role in controls an acceptable level of health and productivity in the cows and their progeny. Being familiar with the internal environment of the animal enables early detection of any dangers to the health of the animal and enables one to react before any clinical signs appear. Thus management in periparturient dairy cows is very important for prevention of many disturbances. The aim of the study was to compare the values of selected blood parameters in dairy cows shortly pre and post partum. It had to answer on the question The materials consisted of 30 clinical healthy cows tested 3-7 days before calving and 3-5 ...
Mastitis, an inflammation of the udder, is the most costly disease in the dairy industry. Somatic cells (which are mainly white blood cells) increase during an infection. For this reason, and because bacteriological procedures are time consuming and expensive, the somatic cell counts (SCC) are used as a general indicator of udder health. Currently, Dairy Herd Improvement (DHI) offers milk sampling to determine individual cow SCC. Many dairy producers use these SCCs to make management decisions such as culling, treatment or early dry-off. However, it is not clear what the value is of these SCC to base these management decisions on. The objectives of the following studies were to analyze the accuracy of the DHI labs in Florida in determining SCC, observe more closely milking to milking SCC variation and to use DHI records to determine the value of the DHI hot list, which ranks the highest SCC cows in the herd each test day. Chapter 3 was completed to assess the accuracy of our lab. Milk samples ...

A scheme aimed at encouraging young dairy farmers to take a leading role in their industry has been launched by Dairy Farmer of Britain
As you are aware, due to lower productivity of animals and shrinking of farm holdings, dairy farmers are moving from small herds to large farms. In order to demonstrate the economies of scale in large-scale dairy farming as well as to conduct research on increasing productivity of milch animals; we have established Indias largest integrated dairy farm with around 3,000 cows under management and we are planning to increase the herd-size to around 5,000 apart from establishing a separate farm for development of indigenous breeds of cattle. However, large farms like ours are facing procedural hurdles in obtaining licences for importing live animals, semen (including sexed semen), embryos, vaccines, fodder, etc. specifically meant for these cattle. We would therefore request you for suggesting the following policy amendments ...
Before you watch the video, here is some information on the health of milk.. The dairy industry is a business, this is what people are ignorant about. They tell people that milk is good for health, to sell more milk, and people just suck it right up (you can take that both ways). The dairy industry does not care about your health, anyone who thinks so is a fool, they only care about one thing, the same thing all businesses are interested in, MONEY!. In order to make money, businesses will say whatever it takes to make the sale, the dairy INDUSTRY is no different. They tell you it makes you stronger and healthier but the truth came to me from a doctor, my wifes obstetrician. When my wife was pregnant her obstetrician put her on prenatal vitamins, then told her to limit her milk intake because it blocks the absorption of iron, among other key nutrients. Well, Since it blocks the absorption of iron and other key nutrients, why would you ever drink it? Pregnant or not! Something else the came to ...
Dairy Industry Newsletter, the best source of international dairy industry insider information, has reported on the dairy industry for more than 20 years.
This is the eighth hidden-camera investigation by MFA into the dairy industry. Sadly, each of these investigations has uncovered a pattern of extreme cruelty, neglect, and violence. Treated as mere milk-producing machines, cows exploited for milk and cheese endure lives of near constant misery and deprivation.. MFA reported the abuses to farm management and quickly presented local law enforcement authorities with the video footage and a detailed legal complaint outlining clear violations of Colorados anti-cruelty laws. MFA is calling on the Morgan County Sheriffs Department and District Attorneys Office to take swift and decisive action in pursuing justice for these abused and exploited animals. We are also calling on Dairy Farmers of America to immediately adopt meaningful animal welfare guidelines and oversight for all of its member farms. As a national milk marketing cooperative with nearly 15,000 member farms, Dairy Farmers of America has not only the power, but also the responsibility to ...
UK - Herd management decision making could soon be a lot easier, according to a dairy equipment manufacturer which has devised a programme displaying herd management data data together on one screen.
In a one-on-one conversation, Ms. Olson explained another major driver of the Chinese dairy market-infant formula. "With infant formula the number-one use of whey ingredients in China (and actually globally), and the recent legislation allowing select demographics to have a second child, the increased demand for whey ingredients is going to be significant," she said. But on the same note, the Chinese recognize this need, as well as their growing desire for more cheese, and they are starting their own dairy farming and processing operations ...
ANALYSIS - Put simply, dairy farming is a bet that milk is more valuable than feed and, at times of soaring feed prices, cost to litre mathematics is improved by getting cows to produce more milk.
Last year was difficult for New Yorks agricultural businesses; high fuel and feed costs, labor shortages and flooding created a perfect storm scenario for many producers. Perhaps no one, however, felt the crunch as badly as the dairy farmer. The price dairy farmers currently receive per hundredweight for their milk is alarmingly close to what they received as much as twenty years ago. Such prices are determined by what many consider a complex, cumbersome and outdated price control system administered by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). Some dairy economists project a small price upswing in the coming year, yet prices remain significantly low while costs associated with running a farm continue to escalate. The goal of this hearing is to learn what the state can do, both short and long term, to help dairy producers remain viable in the face of such extraordinary conditions. Please see the reverse side for a list of subjects to which witnesses may direct their testimony. ...
The New Zealand-Thailand Closer Economic Partnership agreement was signed on 19 April 2005 and took effect on 1 July 2005. One of the main impacts expected from this deal was to be in the dairy sector. Fonterra, a dairy coop and New Zealands top corporation, was widely projected to be the main beneficiary of the deal while Thailands 20,000 dairy farming families would have to adjust. In the immediate, dairy imports from New Zealand did shoot up, and many Thai dairy farmers went out of business. But then the volume of trade stabilised due to drought, high dairy prices and the melamine milk scandal. last update: May 2012150
Results of comparison testing of raw milk component examined by instrument A comparison testing was held in July 2013 by Hsin Chu Branch in order to understand the analytical competence of the joined laboratories for raw cow milk component. A total of 17 laboratories participated in the test, including Hsin Chu Branch and 16 laboratories from local dairy plant. The analytical results were analyzed using Robust-Z statistics into three grading categories as follows: ,Z, score ≤ 2 as satisfactory, 2 , , Z , , 3 as acceptable and , Z , ≥ 3 as unsatisfactory. According milk fat test, 12, 3 and 2 laboratories were graded as satisfactory, acceptable, and unsatisfactory, respectively. Unsatisfactory percentage was 11.8%. And according milk protein test, 14 and 3 laboratories were graded as satisfactory and acceptable, respectively. And according lactose test, 11, 3 and 1 laboratories were graded as satisfactory, acceptable, and unsatisfactory, respectively. Unsatisfactory percentage was 6.7%. ...
Citation: Van Kessel, J.S. 2004. Factors affecting the dairy farm ecology of bacterial pathogens. Feedinfo News Service. Interpretive Summary: Technical Abstract: Microbial pathogens have long been a concern in dairy production due to their potential impact on animal health, milk production, and economics. In recent years, increasing concerns over zoonotic pathogens in the dairy environment and in milk and meat products have added a new dimension to the challenge of biosecurity and biocontainment. Local programs have been developed to help dairy producers implement best management practices (BMPs) that minimize the incidence of animal disease, improve profitability, assure product safety, and address issues of biosecurity. To be able to scientifically support regional management practices there is a need for longitudinal research on commercial dairy farms throughout the United States. Scientists at the USDAs Environmental Microbial Safety Laboratory, are collaborating with researchers at ...
ROY JANKIELSOHN, leader of the DA: THE Free State dairy industry continues to shed producers and jobs. The number of milk producers in the Free State has dropped from 987 in January 2007 to a mere 316 in September 2014. This is a 68% reduction in...
Because theres so much misinformation surrounding the subject, Vox recently created a video which illustrates the facade of the dairy industry. One of the points made is that despite the fact that consumers can get the daily recommendation of calcium, potassium, and protein from fruits and vegetables, the dairy industry has spent billions of dollars to convince the populace otherwise.. If you were taught that one must drink milk to grow up "big and strong," youre not alone. However, now is the time to get educated on the facts.. Because milk is very mucus-forming in the human body, it is believed to contribute to allergies, ear infections, Type 1 diabetes, anemia, and even constipation. In addition, the food may contribute to various types of cancers as consumption of the product increases the bodys level of insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1).. The good news is that there are plenty of tasty, creamy dairy alternatives that are not only easy-to-make, theyre affordable. Milks from rice, ...
Chinas dairy industry is a fast rising one that is developing more rapidly than the local poultry and swine sectors. Today, China is becoming a large and increasingly important global dairy production and trading market.
When we look at the challenges facing modern high production dairy farming we think of feed utilisation, reproductive success and animal health. What remains hidden is the effect that mycotoxins can have on all 3 of these aspects. The recently published Biomin World Mycotoxin Survey 2016 illustrates risks relevant to dairy cows.
by Elizabeth A. Tomlin. Central New Yorks 2015 Dairy Day focused on breeding stronger and healthier dairy herds through genetic improvement, reproductive results and calf management.. Dr. Curt Van Tassell, Research Geneticist, ARS, USDA, from Beltsville, MD, spoke to attendees about using genomics for testing and predicting future traits in dairy herds.. "Were using DNA information to supplement performance data to predict genetic values," Van Tassell explained. "Weve been collecting data for 100 years, so we have an incredible historic collection of data.". Van Tassell estimates that the genetic merit of well over 16 million dairy cows has been obtained since 1960 with involvement from all breed organizations.. Data collected includes records of identification, lactation, daily yields, reproduction events, calving difficulty scores, stillbirth scores, growth, disease resistance and other data significant to the dairy cattle industry.. Genetic data banks also evaluate individual genes ...

Oct. 2 (BusinessDesk) - New Zealand dairy farmers are facing an austere 2014/15 season, says the national farming lobby, Federated Farmers, in response to the further slump in international dairy prices overnight.
Large-scale dairy farming is taking over an increasing share of the states milk production. With that growth, come economic and environmental fears.
