Projekttitel QualityLowInputFood WP 4.5: Entwicklung betriebs- und regionalspezifischer Strategien zur Eutergesundheit im Biolandbau (EU-Project Quality Low Input Food)
Offizielles Akronym QLIF, WP 4.5
Offizielle Projektnummer 506358
FiBL-Projektnummer 3500108
Abstract

Organic regulations claim that animal health should be assured by a cascade of measures, namely breeding (long-term), management & prevention (medium-term), and complementary medicine (short-term), before conventional medicine can be applied, exceptionally. However, effective alternative methods for mastitis control in dairy cows are not used generally, and herd health management to improve udder health is not implemented in most of organic dairy farms. The lack of a wide spread network of skilled veterinarians is an additional factor, which strengthens the situation dramatically. Only if a suitable animal health assurance system in organic farms is implemented in general, the udder health of organic cows and in consequence the quality of organic milk leads to a well accepted status in contrary to the situation.

Project aims:

  • To analyse the main factors influencing udder health in organic dairy farms
  • To evaluate the efficacy of complementary mastitis treatments
  • To establish an intervention framework for farmers, vets and advisors in organic dairy farms

Methodology:

  • epidemiological factor analysis
  • clinical trials (placebo controlled random trials)
