Milk mid-infrared spectroscopy (MIR) technology has a great potential to improve efficiency of breeding and management of dairy cows. DairyBio ha been conducting research on the use of the technology - that is already used on collected milk samples - for profitability, productivity and animal welfare outcomes for the Australian dairy herd.
Join Murray Dairy extension officer Ross Read and Agriculture Victoria research scientists Dr Jo Newton and Dr Phuong Ho to hear more and Ask the researcher about the application of MIR technology on-farm at the MIR prediction virtual forum.
They will be discussing and answering questions about:
- MIR prediction of fertility
- MIR prediction of blood metabolic profiles
- MIR detection of pregnancy status
- MIR mapping of genes affecting milk composition
- MIR prediction of lameness
- Where to from here
