Supervisors: Ellen JONGMAN, Cameron CLARK , Yani GARCIA , Kendra KERRISK

Thesis abstract:

Studies into the management of dairy cattle on a pasture based automatic milking system (AMS) to improve cow performance and welfare. Particular focus has been made towards the impact of hot summer conditions on these types of farms systems and identifying potential methods of reducing the impact of these conditions on the comfort and performance of the cows.
