Relationship between udder health and hygiene on farms with an automatic milking system (001-01.09.2011)

Abstract: Poor hygiene is an important risk factor for reduced udder health. Because the teat cleaning process is done automatically on farms with an automatic milking system (AMS), hygiene management might differ. The aim of this study was to determine the…...
