The large share of involuntary cullings associated with health and fertility problems has become a concern in the dairy industry. As much as 70-80% of all cullings are involuntary, and the main three reasons reported are lameness, mastitis and fertility problems. Not only is this an animal welfare problem, but it is also very costly for the dairy farmer, so these issues need to be addressed. Fortunately there is plenty of research and knowledge available to support the dairy farmers, and the solutions do not have to be radical changes and large investments. Even simple things that improve the cows' comfort can have a dramatic positive effect.
