NKJ-network: Healthy Udders for Sustainable Milk Production
Seminar on Nordic Mastitis Research – ongoing projects and future needs in Uppsala, Sweden
September 12-13, 2018
Mastitis continues to be the most common and costly disease of dairy cows and it is the predominant reason for antibiotic usage in dairy herds. It has a negative impact on milk production and quality, animal welfare and farm economics; overall, healthy animals are more efficient milk producers.
The Nordic researchers working on bovine mastitis and udder health are enhancing their collaboration and building an active network, supported by NKJ (Nordic Joint Committee for Agricultural and Food Research) networking funds to tackle the challenges of mastitis together. A long-term goal of such collaboration is to support and enhance competitiveness and profitability of Nordic dairy production through science-based knowledge and advice to the dairy sector.
Join us for a scientific session and share results from your own research or just come to hear about udder health related research that is going on in the Nordic countries. Also, take part in a brainstorming session on research needs in the field of udder health in the Nordic countries.
