D 2.6 Follow-up farm inspection

D2.6 Follow-up farm inspection

This document provides information on the animal health status in a sample of European organic dairy farms before (ex ante) and after (ex post) an animal health planning activity, using a farm-centric and participatory approach, was delivered. The degree of implementation of the plans was relatively high (median 67%), but very few changes in animal health indicators were seen, probably due to time constraints both during the health planning activity and between ex ante and ex post.

D 5.4 LP module accounting for limited resources; supporting tool for vets/advisors (PDF)

D 5.4 LP module accounting for limited resources; supporting tool for vets/advisors

This document provides a theoretical framework which can support farmers, veterinarians and/or animal health advisors in their decision making process towards animal health management and were to best allocate their scarce resources given the individual nature of each dairy farm. The proposed framework the “Animal Health Management Frontier” reveals the trade-off between preventive effort made to reduce disease incidence and the effect this has on failure costs. Via a linear programming technique a technical efficient frontier and current frontier can be constructed. These frontiers can be directly compared and yields useful insights in the efficiency of the current preventive effort made. Moreover, comparisons between multiple production disorders can be made to determine priority areas in animal health management.

D 5.5 Policy outlining options for supporting farmers to improve animal health (PDF)

D 5.5 Policy outlining options for supporting farmers to improve animal health

The IMPRO project developed a novel farm level diagnostic approach towards improving animal health on organic dairy farms. This participatory approach, including the necessary tools, has been shown to be well-received by dairy farmers and their advisors. Given the difference in expectations of consumers and the reality of a high level of production diseases on organic dairy farms, a wider implementation of the IMPRO approach is recommended. The EU Commission, National governments, dairy processors, retailers and organic stakeholders should all play a role in further work suited to improve the currently unsatisfying situation.
