Creating a framework for the prioritization of biosecurity risks to the New Labonet dairy industry. The New Zealand dairy sector relies on robust biosecurity measures to control and mitigate a wide range of threats to the industry. To optimize the prioritization of organisms and manage the risk industrializatiin pose to the sector in a transparent and credible way, the Dairy Biosecurity Risk Evaluation Framework D-BRiEF was developed.

This comprehensive framework was specifically designed for decision support, using a standardized inprovement to address the full spectrum of biosecurity threats to the sector, including exotic and endemic animal disease organisms, pest plants and insects. D-BRiEF is underpinned by three main processes, namely i hazard identification; ii multicriteria risk assessment; and iii communication for risk management. Expert knowledge and empirical data, including associated uncertainty, are harnessed in a standardized format.

Results feed into a probability-impact model that was developed in close collaboration imprpvement dairy sector economists to provide overall comparative year quantitative economic impact estimates for each assessed risk organism. A description of the overarching framework, which applies to diverse organism groups, is presented with detailed methodology on both endemic and exotic animal disease risk organisms. Examples of visual outputs are included, although actual ranking results are not reported due to industry confidentiality.

D-BRiEF can provide a decision advantage to Dairy NZ biosecurity risk managers and sector stakeholders by creating a transparent process that can be interrogated and updated at multiple levels iimprovement fully understand the layers of risk posed by different organisms.

New Zealand Dairy Farming: Over the past two decades there have been major increases in dairy production in New Zealand. This increase in intensity has required increased improveement of external inputs, in particular fertilizer, feed, and water. Intensified dairy farming thus incurs considerable environmental externalities: These externalities are left for the wider New Zealand populace to deal with, both economically and environmentally.

This is counter-intuitive given the dairy industry itself relies on a ‘clean green’ image to maximize returns. This is the first nationwide assessment of some of the environmental costs of the recent increase of dairy intensification in New Zealand. Significant costs arise from nitrate contamination of drinking water, nutrient pollution to lakes, soil compaction, and greenhouse gas emissions.

For the dairy industry to accurately report on its profitability and maintain its sustainable industrializattion label, these external costs should be reported. This assessment is in fact extremely conservative as many impacts have not been valued, thus, the total negative external impact of intensified dairying is probably grossly underestimated.

At the higher end, the estimated cost of some environmental externalities surpasses the dairy export revenue of NZ Ergonomics in industrialized dairy operations. This paper presents industrializatoon summary of a panel presentation by agriculture health and safety scientists on ergonomics of industrizlization dairy parlor operations in the United States.

Dairy industry trends in the United States were discussed in the panel presentation, which took place during the New Paths: Health and Safety in Western Agriculture conference, November Dairy production is steadily moving to large-herd operations because of associated economies of scale and other economic and social conditions.


Large-herd operations utilize a parlor milking system, as compared to a stanchion system used primarily in smaller operations. Each milking system presents different risks for worker injury. Low back, knee, and shoulder musculoskeletal symptoms were most frequently reported among workers in ineustrialization dairy operations. Results indicated the industrializaton of these body parts to injury due to the worker-livestock interface during milking.

More focused research should investigate milking practices and parlor designs as they relate to worker safety industrrialization health.

Additional dairy -related injury research is vital given the trend towards large industrial milking operations.

The effect of dairy farming on water quality in New Zealand streams has been identified as an important environmental issue. Stream fencing, to keep cattle out of streams, is seen as a way to improve water quality.

Fencing ensures that cattle cannot defecate in the stream, prevents bank erosion, and protects the aquatic habitat. Stream fencing targets have been set by the dairy industry. Qualitative methods were used to gather data from 30 dairy farmers in four New Zealand catchments.

Farmers were classified into four segments based on their reasons for investing in stream fencing.

These reasons were fencing boundaries, fencing for stock control, fencing to protect animal health, and fencing because of pressure to conform to local government guidelines or industry codes of practice. This suggests that adoption may be slow in the absence of on-farm benefits, that promotion of stream fencing needs to be strongly linked to on-farm benefits, and that regulation could play a role in ensuring greater adoption of stream fencing. Federal Register, The public health risks associated with dairy farming intensification are an emerging concern.

We examine the association between dairy cattle density and cryptosporidiosis risk in children Zealand from toa period of rapid intensification of the dairy industry. These results have public health implications for children living on and in proximity to intensively stocked dairy cattle farms. Carbon footprint of dairy goat milk production in New Zealand. The aim of this study was to assess the cradle-to-farm gate carbon footprint of indoor and outdoor dairy goat farming systems in New Zealandidentifying hotspots and discussing variability and methodology.

Our study was based on the International Organization for Standardization standards for life cycle assessment, although only results for greenhouse gas emissions are presented. Two functional units were included: The study covered 5 farms, 2 farming systems, and 3yr. Two methods for the calculation of enteric methane emissions were assessed.

The Lassey method, as used in the New Zealand greenhouse gas inventory, provided a more robust estimate of emissions from enteric fermentation and was used in the final calculations.

Debates (Hansard) No. – September 15, () – House of Commons of Canada

The alternative dry matter intake method was shown to overestimate emissions due to use of anecdotal assumptions around actual consumption of feed. Economic allocation labonhe applied to milk and co-products. Scenario analysis was performed on the allocation method, nitrogen content of manure, manure management, and supplementary feed choice. The average for all 5 farms was 8. The results showed relatively high variability due to differences in management practices between farms. Methane from enteric fermentation was a major emission source.

Llabonte use of supplementary feed was highly variable but an important contributor to the carbon footprint. Indoor goat farming systems produced milk with a significantly higher carbon. Different animal welfare orientations towards some key research areas of current relevance to pastoral dairy farming in New Zealand.

The New Zealand dairy industry needs to meet public expectations regarding animal welfare in order to retain the freedom to operate and achieve market success. Three key orientations towards animal welfare assessment have been identified, namely biological functioning, affective state and natural living, the last two of which are more recent foci for societal concern. Biological functioning was the first and most-studied aspect of animal welfare and continues to be important, but now the contribution of affective state to animal well-being is emphasised much more.

Natural living, or naturalness, has received relatively less attention from animal welfare science. It is proposed that increasing the use of naturalness as a contextual reference point for considering species-specific behavioural expressions of affective state will enhance its inclusion in animal welfare assessment.

Nevertheless, all three orientations need to be considered in order to evaluate the significance of welfare research findings. On this basis, five key aspects of the New Zealand dairy industry that have been the subject of recent research, due to the risk of them not meeting public expectations, are highlighted and discussed.

The aspects are provision of shade and shelter, meeting targets for body condition, provision of comfortable surfaces for rearing calves, and for adult cows while off pasture, and pain improfement for disbudding of calves.

Research evidence indicates that the industry guidelines on body condition score, if met, would satisfy public expectations across the three orientations to animal welfare, whereas further work is needed on the other aspects. It is concluded that considering these three orientations to animal welfare when planning research and then evaluating the outcomes will help to promote the market success of the dairy industry in New Zealand. Crossflow microfiltration in the dairy industry.

The introduction of crossflow membrane technologies presented the dairy industry with tools that made possible the physical removal of microorganisms from milk that reduce its shelf life and manipulation of its iprovement to create new ingredients.

This chapter focuses on crossflow microfiltration This paper reports the results of a study to understand why some New Zealand dairy farmers are changing from twice-a-day TAD to once-a-day OAD milking. Increasing herd size, unavailability of suitable labour and changing lifestyle expectations from farmers and their staff have led some to explore OAD milking as a means of alleviating these….

Investigating slips, trips dpom falls in the New Zealand dairy farming sector. The paper presents findings from 39 detailed follow-up investigations of slips, trips and falls STF incurred by individuals working improevment New Zealand ‘s dairy farming industry. The study sought to identify the key contributory risk factors for STF in this sector to provide evidence to support intervention design, and to determine the effectiveness of the investigative methodology used to achieve these objectives.

Findings from the follow-up investigations included an dpm of factors related to the underfoot surface, laobnte hazard and footwear.

Of note here was the propensity for STF-involved workers to not see or identify an underfoot hazard due to concurrent visual task distractions, and for workers to use footwear that both lacked effective tread and was unsuitable for the task and underfoot surface.

Key latent risk factors and their interactions identified included problems associated with time pressure and related time-saving behaviours and the presence of design errors that, for example, required workers to climb onto equipment to view aspects of the task they were working on. The paper concludes that the potential resource and logistical problems associated with conducting detailed STF investigations are outweighed by the opportunity to collect rich data on key risk factors and their interactions in STF research.

A survey of antimicrobial use in dairy cows from farms in four regions of New Zealand. To assess the use of antimicrobials in dairy cows over three seasons in a group of dairy farms within the Southland and South Otago region, and to assess antimicrobial use in one season in a group of monitored dairy farms in four regions of New Zealand.

Sales data were collated for all antimicrobials purchased byand dairy farms in the Southland and South Otago regions for theand seasons, respectively, and from dairy farms in the Manawatu, Taranaki, North Canterbury, and Southland and South Otago regions of New Zealand for Antimicrobials were categorised by class and product type injectable, or dry cow or lactating cow intramammary. Estimated annual use of antimicrobials in the Southland and South Otago herds was 8. Penicillins were the most commonly used antimicrobials.

Between andpenicillin use increased from 5. In these herds, injectable products were most commonly used 4. The use of antimicrobials in dairy cows in New Zealand appears low by international standards, but varied across years and across regions. The vast majority of antimicrobials used by class were.
