Extensions to a veterinary health and management program data system for dairy herds


, : Extensions to a veterinary health and management program data system for dairy herds. Australian Veterinary Journal 56(10): 474-476

Additions to a previously described veterinary health and management program for dairy herds are reported [in Victoria, Australia]. These include a graphical representation of mean milk production per cow per day, a current and historical record of the distribution of the herd in reproduction states, a standardized index of clinical mastitis and an index of the degree of nutritional anestrus in a herd. For seasonally-calving herds, new categories of cows requiring examination or consideration have been added to selection lists. These are cows which have no estrus record for 30 days preceding a nominated date for the commencement of breeding and those which have no estrus recorded for 30 days after the nominated date.
