AMS prosjektet - New approaches for management and breeding of dairy cows in automatic milking systems (AMS)
Increased yield per cow and an increasing number of dairy cows milked in automatic milking systems (AMS) constitute the current trends in Norwegian dairy production.
This development represents new opportunities, but also challenges related to feeding, animal health, breeding, hygienic quality of milk, data handling and technology adjustment. The AMS project therefore aims to develop new approaches for management of feeding, health, reproductive performance, milk hygiene, breeding and production in Norwegian AMS.
Focus areas of the project:
- Energy balance, health, and reproduction
- Milking time testing
- Breeding for better adaptation of dairy cows to AMS
- Mathematical models
- Spore counts in AMS
- Technology adaptation, management, and health environment and safety
