Abstract

Sub-optimal mobility has been identified as the third most important health-related economic loss, after
fertility and mastitis (Bruijnis et al., 2010, Alawneh et al., 2011, Huxley, 2013). It is well known that severe forms of suboptimal
mobility cause losses in terms of milk yield (Enting et al., 1997); however, less is known about the effects of mild
forms of sub-optimal mobility on milk yield and other production performance parameters. Therefore, the objective of this
study was to investigate the effect of sub-optimal mobility on production performance in pasture-based dairy cows.
