Studies on intersucking in dairy cattle

Studies on intersucking in dairy cattle

Tijdschrift Voor Diergeneeskunde 103(9): 485-489

Intersucking occurred on nearly 50% of the farms in the Province of Utrecht. The incidence was not affected by housing system, size of the herd or area available to each cow in cubicle stalls. It was thought unlikely that the animals imitated intersucking by others. Intersucking often occurred prior to p.m. milking, the sucking animal usually forming a steady pair with the cow.
