Cow health priority with robots PDPW STAFF

MADISON, Wis. – As was evidenced by a standing-room-only audience at the 2019 Professional Dairy Producers of Wisconsin Business Conference in Madison, dairy producers are eager to learn more about implementing robotic milkers into their dairies. A trio of international experts said focusing on cow welfare and health is the first item dairy managers need to address before installing robots. Dr. Nigel Cook, veterinarian, is a member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons, a professor and department chair at the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Veterinary Medicine. He spoke about Cook cow mobility, lameness and bedding options to consider in automated-milking systems. Based on his years of veterinary experience, Cook said American dairy producers are behind their European counterparts in adopting automated-milking systems. According to recent data milk-production averages 70 to 80 pounds per cow in robotic herds. Lameness prevalence averages 26 percent to 32 percent – an unacceptable rate compared to the 13 percent typically seen in well-managed conventional herds. Cows invariably prefer deep-bedded sand as compared to other bedding options. Yet only one-third of herds using automated-milking systems in the upper Midwest use sand in stalls



A box robot made by GEA features technology to complete all steps of the milking process in one attachment. that way. Dairy producers are familiar with the managerial disadvantages of bedding with sand, not the least of which are notable wear and tear on equipment. Flooring type plays a critical role in hoof health. Slatted floors in facilities are associated with increased lameness risk as well as poor air quality. And yet they’re making a comeback in facilities with automated-milking systems. Currently 22 percent of facilities with automated-milking systems have slatted flooring, compared to almost none in conventional herds. Further compounding the hoof-health problem, only 70 percent of facilities offer access to a footbath. Only one-quarter of

the herds drive cow traffic through the footbath at the recommended frequency of four times per week. “It’s not surprising production and lameness is disappointing,” Cook said. Joining Cook during the session were Dr. Virpi Kurkela, veterinarian, and architect Jouni Pitkäranta, both with 4dBarn Consulting. That’s a Finland-based consulting business regarding automated-milking systems-facility design. “A barn is a tool for milk production,” Kurkela said. “No matter the objective for dairy-cattle buildings, the barn design must allow for excellent cow comfort and health as well as functionality

and efficient work flow. This is particularly true of facilities in which robotic milkers will be used.” Cook agreed; cows with mobility problems don’t visit the robots as

frequently. “You do not want a lame cow in a robot,” he said. In Finland 35 percent of milk is produced by cows milked in automated-milking systems. Kurkela described the three main reasons to choose robotic milking as “labor, labor and labor.”“Using robots is physically less demanding,” she said. Other advantages include more flexibility in work routines and expanding the herd without adding labor. But installing robots won’t necessarily make an operation more efficient. “A robot itself doesn’t solve animal health or labor challenges,” she said. “It’s all about barn design and the management around it.” Pitkäranta has designed about 700 dairy barns in seven European and Scandinavian countries. He outPitkäranta lined 10 essential elements in automated-milking-system barn design to support good hoof health, overall cow comfort and efficiency in labor.  a comfortable deeply bedded stall adequately designed for cow size


A laser serves as a teat-position sensor in a Lely robotic milking system.  access to food and water with at least 24 inches of bunk space per cow and 3.5 inches of accessible water-trough perimeter per cow  socially stable groups free from cows exhibiting aggressive behaviors  10- to 12-foot-wide stall alleys, 14-foot-wide feed alleys, and 14-foot-wide crossovers between the feed and stall alleys  sufficient area in front of the robots for open access by cows wanting to be milked – at least 20 feet  footbath location that allows for voluntary cow traffic and easy walk-through  appropriately grooved concrete flooring  training gate for heifers to learn to attend the robot before they calve  fresh pen with 24-hour access to designated robots to promote smooth transitions, three-timesper-day milking and optimal health Please see ROBOTS, Page D2

Control dry period to reduce ketosis

ubclinical ketosis is a common fresh-cow challenge that affects even the best-managed herds. Zeroing in on excellent care of transition cows is critical to optimal herd health, reHENRY HOLDORF production and production levels. Dairy producers know the impacts of subclinical ketosis.  decreased milk production and increased cull rates in the first 30 days  worse first-service conception rates  more incidence of displaced abomasum When considering cows with both subclinical and clinical ketosis, the economic burden amounts to about $289 per case. Research done at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the laboratory of Heather White led to the development of KetoMonitor. It’s a tool that uses milktest and cow-management data to assess if a cow has subclinical ketosis. In partnership with AgSource Cooperative Services, KetoMonitor is helping researchers better understand how on-farm practices may be tweaked to curb the effects of the costly disease. Among other points of data, length of dry period and its impact on subclinical ketosis was recently studied. Farm records collected by AgSource show the average dry period for cows with subclinical ketosis is 66 days. That compares to 55 days for cows that don’t develop subclinical ketosis. That doesn’t mean a longer dry period will cause subclinical ketosis. But it does indicate those cows may be at greater risk and they’ll need extra attention after calving. First-lactation cows are at lesser risk of developing subclinical ketosis than mature cows. But first-lactation cows that develop subclinical ketosis have a better somatic-cell count at first test compared to non-subclinical-ketosis cows. Research shows an average log

score of 3.75 in primiparous cows compared to 2.8 in mature cows. Interestingly the difference in first-test somatic-cell count between the two lactation groups is much smaller in mature cows. Peak milk is better in cows without subclinical ketosis, averaging 81 pounds compared to 75 pounds in cows with subclinical ketosis. The same pattern can be observed in second and later lactations – cows without subclinical ketosis averaged 109 pounds compared to 106 pounds in cows with subclinical ketosis. Those observations show that cows developing subclinical ketosis in their first lactation produce less milk and have compromised

udder health early in lactation. One extra pound of peak milk is estimated to increase 305-day milk yield by more than 200 pounds. The potential milk-production losses of primiparous cows with subclinical ketosis is 1,200 pounds. For multiparous cows with subclinical ketosis the potential loss is 600 pounds. At $14 per hundredweight, that equals $168 and $84 for the lactation. Cows with longer dry periods were more likely to develop subclinical ketosis. Those subclinical-ketosis cows had lesser peak milk and a better somatic-cell count at first test. The research doesn’t demonstrate that subclinical ketosis causes each of those negative outcomes. But know-


ing the symptoms may help producers determine which cows are affected so they can intervene sooner.

Manage capital needs for success


hile navigating through narrow and negative profit margins during the past four years, many dairies chose not to replace or invest in major capital items. Depressed milk-price levels rendered it appropriate to delay land and equipment purchases as well as upgrades or additions to facilities. Deferring replacements for JIM MORIARTY short periods is acceptable, though it may not be the best long-term strategy. To maintain and enhance operations long-term, it will probably be important to reinvest at some point. Dairy owners will need to determine when, where and how much. Capital expenditures must be a balance between investing to grow and enhancing the business – while not overleveraging cash flow and the balance sheet. When working with dairy clients, one of the measures used to evaluate capital balance is comparing capital costs to milk produced. Capital cost is measured on an economic basis and a debt-service basis. From an economic view, capital cost is calculated as:  the annual total of depreciation  plus interest on debt, or cost of debt capital  plus lease payments on capital items. It’s important to note that depreciation in that calculation is based on the useful life of an asset and not tax-based depreciation. Debt service is the sum of principal and interest payments on term debt, plus lease payments. Then either the capital cost or the debt service is divided by hundredweights of annual milk production. Capital-cost or debt-service levels less than $2.50 per

Times of extended depressed margin often call for delaying the purchase of new equipment. hundredweight are manageable from an economic and cash-flow perspective. On the other hand, capital cost or debt service at more than $2.50 per hundredweight can deplete too much from total milk revenue and cash flow, particularly when milk prices are depressed. In certain circumstances operations may successfully go to a capital cost of more than $2.50 per hundredweight for a specific investment – such as a large expansion or for robotic milking. But those investments need to generate an excellent level of efficiency and productivity to support the added capital cost. Throughout time the operation should then work to return to capital cost or debt less than $2.50 per hundredweight. When considering reinvesting in an operation while maintaining reasonable capital and debt-service levels, there are a number of strategies to manage capital investments.

“Would you rather drive through Chicago early on a Friday evening or really late on a Sunday night?” Likewise robots need to be in an open and accessible space. The same goes for footbaths. “It’s crucial for cows to go through the footbath at least four times a week,” Pitkäranta said. “And it has to be easy for them to walk through.” Other critical aspects in barn design include efficient gating, perimeter feeding and access to the outside.

part of heifer raising. That will generate grower payment for facility-investments costs. But it can pay off in reducing fixed-capital costs and adjusting expenses to the number of heifers needed for herd replacement. Hopefully milk-price recovery will begin later this year and continue into 2020. That would provide more opportunity for capital replacement and investment options. Evaluating current capital cost and debt-service levels is a good starting point in the capital-planning process. From there prioritize capital needs and use other strategies to manage capital needs in the operation. That will help position dairy businesses for long-term success.

 Establish a capital-replacement plan. Map timing of capital investments to advance the dairy operation. Spreading out purchases and maintain reasonable capital cost and debt-service position.  Prioritize high-use assets that are key to the income-producing ability of the dairy. Those tend to be milking systems and feeding equipment, as well as cow-comfort improvements that enhance daily production.  Consider custom-hiring or equipment-share arrangements for equipment used for limited periods – including forage harvesting, combines, and manure pumping and application equipment. That option comes with some trade-off in control and timing. But with the increased cost and capacity of new equipment, it’s an area that should be strongly considered.  Consider outsourcing

Ideally gating should be the job of only one person. The work should involve a minimum number of steps. People must be able to move between barn areas without turning gates. A boot-wash station should be positioned before the entry point of every clean area. The use of perimeter-feeding alleys – in contrast to centralized-feeding alleys – is another component of barn design to consider. Benefits include pro- animal handling and separattecting stalls and alleys from ing in the middle of the barn, weather, accommodating and allowing robot rooms to be located closer together for increased worker efficiency. In addition it calls for less frequent crossing of the feed alley and boot washing. Pasture access has long been an important topic in the minds of European consumers. The mindset is fast becoming critical in the United States. All new barns in Europe have pasture access at least for some animal groups. Consumers are eager to see increased

emphasis on that component in barn designs in the United States. Studies clearly show robotics can decrease labor hours per pound of milk produced. They can also increase milking frequency to an average of 2.5 to three times per day. But before choosing to install robotic milkers the priority must be ensuring excellent animal health and well-being. “Too often people think it’s enough to just drop a robot in,” Pitkäranta said. “That’s the biggest mistake.

LEFT: A Maly Farms barn roof near Bryant, Wisconsin, is one of many that collapsed in early-2019 snowstorms. The 430-cow dairy is owned by Ron Maly, Butch Maly and Alicia Sippl. They received financial assistance through a farm-disaster bonus offered by Focus on Energy.

Disaster bonus assists damaged farm FOCUS ON ENERGY

‌Record-breaking snowfall during the 2018-2019 winter caused significant damage all across the Midwest, including many dairy barns in Wisconsin. In February the roof of the main free-stall barn at Maly Farms Inc. collapsed, bringing with it two of its high-volume low-speed fans. Remaining sections of the roof were held up by a headlock system that absorbed the brunt of the collapse. Located in the northeastern Wisconsin village of Bryant, the area received more than 50 inches of snow that month. Several of the farms impacted by roof collapses also endured livestock fatalities, but Maly Farms was fortunate. At the time of the incident many of the cows were in a different building being milked. The remaining animals were spared because the headlocks took the force of the impact. As the team at Maly Farms began the process of replacing the roof and installing new fans, they decided to upgrade to energy-efficient light-emitting-diode lighting. After reading an article in the Professional Dairy Producers of Wisconsin’s e-newsletter “Manager’s Memo,” farm owners learned Focus on Energy was offering a farm-disaster bonus. The bonus would help farmers offset costs associated with barn and milking-facility damage. Almost a month after the incident, the Maly Farms barn was reconstructed. Farm workers then began fixing electrical equipment to power new fans and

lighting systems. Through the farm-disaster bonus the owners received a 25 percent bonus in addition to existing energy-efficiency incentives for improving the facility. Alicia Sippl is co-owner of the 430-cow family dairy. “Our family has worked with Focus on Energy over the past six years on various projects ranging from farm audits to installing new lighting and heating equipment,” she said. “We’re extremely fortunate to work with a program that truly cares for their customers in good times and bad.” The family is a customer of Wisconsin Public Service Corporation, one of 107 Wisconsin utilities that partner with the Focus on Energy program. Agribusinesses requiring reconstruction can submit a request for funding if a natural disaster impacted their facilities in 2019. To qualify, affected business must be served by a utility that participates in the Focus on Energy program. The bonus only applies toward equipment located in the damaged facility. Place requests by June 1; complete projects and submit incentive paperwork by Nov. 30. Visit focusonenergy. com/farmdisasterbonus or call 888-947-7828 for more information. Focus on Energy is a Professional Dairy Producers of Wisconsin mission sponsor. It’s a Wisconsin-utilities statewide energy-efficiency and renewable-resource program funded by the state’s investor-owned energy utilities as well as participating municipal and electric cooperative utilities.

Keep youth safe this summer ‌ T

he school year is coming to an end. Farm parents are looking forward to having extra help; youth are excited to be outside. It’s well known that work is good for youth. Agriculture provides opportunities to develop work skills and gain an appreciation for the land. It’s also well known that the farm worksite is dangerous, resulting in numerous injuries and fatalities to SCOTT HEIBERGER working youth. The number of non-fatal injuries to farm youth has been steadily declining since 2001. Despite that every three days a youth dies in an agricultural incident in the United States. For those younger than 16 working in agriculture, the number of fatal injuries is consistently more than all other industries combined. “Too many of these injuries and deaths are associated with youth performing agricultural work that doesn’t match their development level or abilities,” said Marsha Salzwedel, project leader and youth agricultural-safety specialist at the National Children’s Center. To help alleviate the risk involved when youth help with farm work, Agricultural Youth Work Guidelines have been created. The National Children’s Center for Rural and Agricultural Health and Safety partnered with a coalition of experts to create them.

“These guidelines help parents and supervisors determine if a youth is able to safely perform various farm tasks,” Salzwedel said. Visit www.cultivatesafety.org to see the guidelines. They include descriptions of almost 50 common on-farm tasks. cleaning grain bins, calf pens, hutches and free-stall alleys facing silage feeding hay or grain to livestock feeding milk to calves milking cows in a parlor or conventional barn moving large round bales operating a front-end loader operating other equipment such as skid steers, four-wheelers, lawn mowers and pressure washers much more In addition to offering guidance for tasks commonly performed on dairy farms, other agricultural industries are represented – including vegetable farms, orchards and other livestock farms. Accompanying each task description are assessments to help determine if a particular youth can perform the job safely. Also included are associated adult responsibilities, hazards, necessary supervision and protective strategies. Each task description references the standard age typically required to safely complete the task.

edge. “Knowledge is power,” it’s been said. I’m a big believer in growing ourselves. I believe there are magnificent abilities and important assignments within HANK every person. I WAGNER also believe those seeds of greatness must be grown and developed or they’ll remain seeds forever. Learning is an important process to help us come closer to realizing our full potential. But we shouldn’t stop at the learning phase. There’s another component, something knowledge alone will never compare to. It’s available to everyone though it can’t be purchased or easily acquired. It will require time, effort and quite often a little pain. Many people want everything fast and easy. That might explain why we see too little of that important asset in our world today. The humble quiet quality that surpasses knowledge is wisdom. Wikipedia gives a good description of wisdom. “The ability to think and act using knowledge, experience, understanding, common sense, and insight.” People who exercise wisdom can stay unbiased or neutral as they sort through all the information. Rather than instinctively responding with knee-jerk reactions, wise people send the gathered information through the filter of common sense. They apply experience and understanding before acting. Wisdom is acquired through time. Because experience accounts for a big part of wisdom, it’s not commonly found in children. Contrary to popular thought, it doesn’t automati-

Fact sheets, posters, videos and many other resources are available on the “resources” tab of the website. “All incidents are tragic, but those involving youth are especially tragic,” said Eric Vanasdale, senior loss-control representative with COUNTRY Financial. “I participated in creating these guidelines because I wanted to make sure clear and easy-to-use safety materials are available for all farmers and farm workers.” The interactive guidelines are based on the latest scientific research – including child growth and development, agricultural practices, child-injury prevention and agricultural safety. “These guidelines aren’t just a piece of paper anymore,” Salzwedel said. “The new guidelines can be found in an interactive format, as well as in read-only and print versions.” Support for the Agricultural Youth Work Guidelines came from the CHS Foundation, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, and donors to the National Children’s Center for Rural and Agricultural Health and Safety.

cally develop as we grow older. Wisdom must be attained, grown, developed, pursued and even protected. It’s an incredibly valuable quality to possess. Yet I believe we don’t talk about it or explain it often enough. Exercising wisdom requires leadership, especially within the context of leading ourselves. Wisdom will not prompt us to consistently follow the crowd or attempt to be like another person. It will not always accept news or information as accurate or valuable. Wisdom helps us carefully choose our words, strengthen the right relationships, and guide us with finances and other responsibilities inherent in adult life. I’m in pursuit of wisdom. Fortunately the things we seek we shall find. It may take time and effort; things of great value usually do. I also place tremendous value on people who have attained wisdom. I intentionally seek to include wise people in my life – to learn from them and be instructed by them. Sometimes the right decision can be determined simply. Sometimes wisdom is required. Each of us has purpose and destiny prescribed for our lives. I believe wisdom is a necessary part of the process.
