Economic Analysis of Farm-Level Health Problems in Dairy Cattle

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review


Farm-level health problems in dairy cattle, such as mastitis and fertility problems, can cause considerable economic losses. The losses are particularly dependent on farm conditions and prices. As a result, the size of losses differs among farms. This paper presents the basic economic techniques for analysing farm-level health problems. The techniques are applied to quantify losses caused by reproductive failure, mastitis and clinical digital diseases.
