Reporting Calf and Birth Abnormalities

Reference ID:902


Whereas Ayrshire breeders have difficulties monitoring the recessive gene Arthrogryposis Multiplex (AM);

Whereas there is no follow-up on the reporting made by the breeders during milk recording.


Therefore it is proposed that Lactanet establish a process or a reporting tool for calf abnormalities and births observed by dairy producers, and that Lactanet carry out a routine analysis of those reports and make sure that the reporting process includes follow-up with Ayrshire Canada.
