Full name of the study.
In-Line Registered Milk Fat-to-Protein Ratio for the Assessment of Metabolic Status in Dairy Cows.
In this study, the researchers aimed to develop a straightforward method for evaluating the health status of dairy cows by analyzing the milk composition data collected through in-line sensors.
“It can be concluded that changes in the in-line milk fat-to-protein ratio can be used for the identification of metabolic status in dairy cows. In-line F/P ratio can be used for the identification of cows with a higher risk of NEB because in-line F/P ratio has a strongly positive relationship with blood NEFA concentration. Also, the in-line F/P ratio can be used for the identification of cows with a higher risk of subclinical ketosis and subclinical acidosis.”
