This project aims at investigating the relationship between animal health and fertility, productivity in terms of milk yield and the economic outcome of dairy farms, and to investigate the conditions under which farms can succeed in combining profitability with high animal health standards.
There are two parts in the project:
1. What are the relationships between economic efficiency, economic risk, milk yield and animal health in dairy farms?
2. What characterise dairy farms that experience synergies between economic efficiency, milk yield and animal health, and those that experience conflicts between these?

This knoweldge can be used for more informed dialogue about the effects of improved animal health on the competitiveness of farms. This knowledge can also be used to formulate strategies to combine a favourable economic situation with high animal health standards in single farms.
Data will be obtained from the Swedish Milk Recording Scheme, the Farm Economic Survey and a survey.

Detta projekt syftar till att undersöka sambanden mellan djurhälsa och fertilitet, produktivitet i termer av mjölkavkastning och ekonomiskt resultat hos lantbruksföretag med mjölkproduktion, samt till att undersöka under vilka villkor lantbruksföretag kan kombinera goda ekonomiska resultat med god djurhälsa.
Projektet fokuseras runt två områden:
1. Hur ser sambanden ut mellan ekonomisk effektivitet, ekonomisk risk, mjölkavkastning och djurhälsa?
2. Vad utmärker de företag som erfar synergier mellan ekonomisk effektivitet, mjölkavkastning och djurhälsa och de som erfar motsättningar mellan dessa?

Kunskapen kan användas för en mer informerad dialog om vad förbättrad djurhälsa kan leda till i termer av lantbrukets konkurrenskraft. Kunskapen kan också användas till att utforma strategier för hur en väl fungerande ekonomisk situation i det enskilda företaget kan kombineras med god djurhälsa.
Projektet baseras på data från Kokontrollen, Jordbruksekonomiska undersökningen och en enkät.
