Dissertation: Sensor-based mastitis management in automatic milking system farms

dissertations |

A new decision support system can tell the farmer when udder inflammation in cows is chronic, which cases will become chronic, which cases are associated with large losses in milk production and what economic consequences this will have. With the help of sensor data, Johan Bonestroo has developed new decision tools in his doctoral thesis.

Johan is an industrial PhD student employed at DeLaval and SLU. His project is part of LivsID, SLU’s industrial PhD students within the food research area. Johan is the first PhD student in the program to defend his thesis.

The dissertation is now completed and will be defended at Wageningen University & Research (WUR). On June 15 at 11.00 it is possible to participate digitally.
