Summary

2-ORG-COWS aims for an evaluation of novel functional traits and associated environmental descriptors as a prerequisite for both the implementation of organic breeding strategies for local dual-purpose cattle kept in organic pasture based production systems, and for preventive livestock health management. In consequence, the overall objective addresses both adaptation of the dual-purpose cow to pasture based systems, and vice versa adaptation of the system for improving functional (health) traits. Due to this reasons a uniform guide for recording animal welfare (health traits, behavior, fertility), production (milk and meat quality)- and environmental descriptors (feed intake and greenhouse gas emissions) has been developed.
