Abstract

On-farm mortality (death and euthanasia) in dairy cows is a welfare concern which also causes economic losses for the farmer. This study investigated the association between grazing management and on-farm mortality. The results show the importance of summer grazing since low on-farm mortality was associated with access to production pasture for most of the day.
