Abstract

This analysis confirms an association between MS and HD. The results indicate that any form of HD presence is a relevant predictor of MS. From the results, it is clear that more severe type HD, for example; ulcers and digital dermatitis have a significantly greater impact on MS. Based on HD presence, the results also indicate the thresholds wherein MS is likely to be suboptimal (MS>0) thus causing a deviation from the optimal walking pattern of a cow.
