The AMS project

The AMS project - New approaches for management and breeding of dairy cows in automatic milking systems (AMS)

Opplæring i bruk av melkeroboten.

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.



The current project focus on opportunities and challenges on Norwegian AMS farms such as; feeding, energy balance, health, and reproduction of cows milked by AMS, breeding for better adaptation of dairy cows to AMS, farmers technology adaptation and management of AMS farms. Furthermore, the applicability of milking time testing in AMS and milk quality are in focus. An important part of the project deals with the development of novel mathematical approaches to model multidimensional data.
