Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractAcademic


Automatic milking (AM) system have changed dairy herd management and have significantly reduced the physical work involved. Indoor feeding systems have been well adapted to AM, however grazing has not, thus leading to a decrease in grazing on farms with AM. Grazing has many advantages for the economy, environment, animal welfare and product quality. Thus, AM and cow grazing are each highly valued, but have not generally been considered compatible in combination.
