New genomic and management tools for healthier dairy cows

New genomic and management tools for healthier dairy cows

The results obtained in GplusE will help dairy chains moving to more sustainable practices.

Our results show that one can detect cows with imbalanced energy status thanks to the measurement of a few biomarkers in milk.

These will enable animal breeders to improve the selection of resilient, yet highly productive animals.

They will also help farmers, veterinarians and MROs to manage dairy herds better, via individual monitoring of the health and welfare of the animals.
