1 Dairy cow longevity early and late predictors Ulf Emanuelson Dep t Clinical Sciences Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences

2 Roadmap of today s journey Background Early and late events with implications on cow longevity Monitoring of these events

3 Dairy cow lifecycle 1 st Breeding period Weaning 1 st calving Transition period Calving Dry period, mammary involution, BCS, risk of infection Early lactation Peak lactation Colostrum period Conception Preconception Birth Late lactation After John Roche, DairyNZ

4 Why should a dairy cow live long? Early culling may indicate health / welfare problems. The carbon footprint per kg produce is reduced. The costs for a replacement heifer will be recovered Months Source: Patrik Nordgren, Växa Sverige

5 Why should a dairy cow live long? Early culling may indicate health / welfare problems. The carbon footprint per kg produce is reduced. The costs for a replacement heifer will be recovered. Longevity included in genetic selection in many countries for years.

6 Why should a dairy cow live long? Early culling may indicate health / welfare problems. The carbon footprint per kg produce is reduced. The costs for a replacement heifer will be recovered. Longevity included in genetic selection in many countries for years SRB SH SRB SH Average breeding value for survival for Swedish cows per year of birth and breed (Eriksson J-Å, personal communication) Age (in months) of culled Swedish cows per year and breed (Swedish Dairy Assoc., )

7 Early predictors

8 Calf morbidity Warnick (1997): No association (tendency for dullness); owner recorded diseases Hultgren (2009): No association; technician / vet / owner recording of diseases Bach (2011): Diarrhoea, navel infection no association Bovine respiratory disease (BRD) reduced chance to complete 1 st lactation Stanton (2012): BRD before 120d reduced chance to complete 1 st lactation Schaffer (2016): BRD before 120d reduced chance to complete 1 st lactation

9 Growth Le Cozler (2010) Lower growth rates d & d decreased longevity Bach (2011) Higher growth rates 12-65d increased chance to complete 1 st lactation NB high rates before puberty not always beneficial for milk production

10 Failure of passive transfer (FPT) Faber (2005): 2 vs. 4L colostrum within 1h of birth; the rest of feeding was equal 75 and 87% survival through 2 nd lactation, respectively Epigenetic programming? [Raboisson (2016): FPT increased risk for BRD]

11 Monitoring early predictors

12 Characteristics of a monitor Objective High accuracy and precision Cheap / cost-effective Easy / feasible to use Non-invasive

13 Monitoring morbidity (BRD) Objective Accurate/precise Cost-effective Easy Non-invasive Observations by farmer, technician Automatic calf feeder Svensson (2007) unrewarded visits associated with disease Borderas (2009) milk intake / frequency / duration associated with disease, but affected by feed allowance Social and feeding behaviour [Weary, 2009; Rushen, 2012] Cramer (2016) behaviour scoring and association with BRD Moya (2015) feeding behaviour + pattern recognition and BRD (feedlot) de Passillé (2010) activity meters; health? Smith (2015) - triple-axis accelerometer and health (steers) Position location (only cows?); health? Sound analysis; health?

14 Monitoring growth Electronic scales (automatic?) Girth tape Withers / rump height Objective Accurate/precise Cost-effective Easy Non-invasive

15 Monitoring FPT Refractometer (Brix) on serum samples (at 48h age) Deelen (2014) Brix % and IgG highly correlated (0.93); Sensitivity / Specificity for FPT 89% / 89% Hernandez (2016) r=0.79; Se / Sp = 100% / 89% Epigenetic programming; Telomere length? Objective Accurate/precise Cost-effective Easy Non-invasive

16 Late predictors

17 General longevity Age at first calving (AFC) mixed results Milk production mixed results Foot lesions Lameness Reproduction (not pregnant) Diseases: Metabolic disorders Mastitis Reproductive disorders (metritis)

18 Specifically on-farm mortality, early cull On-farm mortality can be an iceberg indicator for involuntary culling Alvåsen (2014): Traumatic events and (several) diseases Dystocia, stillbirth Early lactation Low or missing milk yield at first test-milking (~disease / disturbance) A transition cow problem Metabolic load, negative energy balance Metabolic adaptation (van Knegsel, 2014)

19

20 Monitoring late predictors

21 Monitoring general predictors Dairy herd improvement / farmer records AFC, milk production, reproduction, diseases Routine claw trimming information foot lesions (triple-axis) Accelerometer lameness, diseases Force sensors lameness Rumen bolus (ph, temperature) diseases Position location lameness, diseases Objective Accurate/precise Cost-effective Easy Non-invasive [Caja, 2016]

22 Monitoring transition problems Objective Accurate/precise Cost-effective Easy Non-invasive Stangaferro (2016) rumination and activity monitoring associated with metabolic, mastitis, metritis risks [and culling ] Roberts (2012) metabolic parameters nonesterified fatty acids (NEFA), β-hydroxybutyric acid (BHBA), calcium associated with early-lactation culling risk Milk-fat composition as biomarkers of metabolic state Crookenden (2016) circulating exosomes as biomarkers of metabolic state Hallén Sandgren (2016) automatic body condition scoring; intra-class correlation ; health?; fertility!

23 At the end of the day (journey) Longevity is in the head of the farmer! Bergeå (2016): Farmers seemed well aware of biological factors related to cow longevity Farmers had not worked explicitly with longevity The heifer push Monitoring and acting on predictors: may not necessarily improve longevity will still improve animal welfare provides room for voluntary culling

24 Concluding remarks Not a completely exhaustive review! There are early predictors! There are ways to monitor these predictors Careful considerations are necessary in choosing if / how to monitor for longevity! There are several later predictors There are ways to monitor these predictors Careful considerations necessary Combinations of monitoring devices Caja (2016): the third sense approach
