Dredge, K.; Schnier, C. and Soveri, T. (2005) Hyperketonaemia risk lower in organic cows housed in free stalls. Paper at: Enhancing animal health security and food safety in organic livestock production : the 3rd SAFO workshop, Falenty, Poland, 16-18 September 2004.
The variation in the incidence of hyperketonaemia is marked between individual herds, and even though organic farms have some feeding related factors predisposing to hyperketonaemia, there are also some management practices (especially in loose housing systems) which might act as preventive factors. However, it may be advisable for organic farmers to favour moderate milk production when selecting cows for a herd.
