  • About: 

    In den letzten Jahren hat sich der Pferdebestand auf etwa 900.000 Tiere erhöht. Trotz höherer Managementanforderungen an den Tierhalter werden zunehmend mehr Tiere artgerecht in Gruppen gehalten. Um für diese Haltungsform optimale und tiergerechte Fütterungsbedingungen zu schaffen, wurden automatische Futterabrufstationen entwickelt, bei denen die mehrmalige Futtervorlage über den ganzen Tag verteilt erfolgt. Damit kann auf die individuellen Ansprüche der Tiere eingegangen werden, um die Gefahr der Überfütterung oder der Verdrängung rangniedriger Tiere während der Futteraufnahme zu minimieren.
    Despite the higher management requirements more and more horses are kept in groups. To achieve optimal and appropriate feeding conditions automated feeding systems have been developed. These systems provide for repeated feedings throughout the day. The animals’ individual needs are therefore satisfied. The risk of excessive feeding and suppression of low rank animals during the feed intake is also minimized.

  • About: 

    Marktübliche Pedometer und Rescounter verschiedener Anbieter zur Erfassung von Aktivitätsveränderungen spielen für Aussagen zum Brunstverlauf und zur Tiergesundheit eine zentrale Rolle bei der Tierdatengewinnung. In Vergleichsuntersuchungen an Mutterkühen wurden Zuverlässigkeit und Aussagesicherheit unterschiedlicher Messsysteme am gleichen Tier untersucht. Der Prototyp eines weiterentwickelten Pedometers mit drei Messparametern (Aktivität, Liegezeit, Außentemperatur) und veränderlicher Erfassungszeit wurde in die Versuche einbezogen.
    The paper presents a study where different measuring systems for oestrus detection have been tested on the same animal. The trial included a prototype of an advanced pedometer for the measurement of three parameters.

  • About: 

    Die kontinuierliche Erfassung von Tierdaten ist eine entscheidende Voraussetzung für das Herdenmanagement von Milchkühen. Pedometer, die am Fußgelenk der Tiere befestigt sind, dienen der Aktivitätsmessung und spielen eine bedeutende Rolle bei der Brunsterkennung und Beurteilung der Tiergesundheit. Das vorgestellte neue Pedometersystem kann drei Parameter messen: die Aktivität, die Liegedauer und die Außentemperatur am Fußgelenk.
    The article is about a new pedometer that is able to measure three parameters: activity, laying period, outside temperature (ALT-Pedometer). The pedometer is fixed at the ankles of the dairy cows.

  • electronic identification

  • fattening pigs
  • About: 

    Electronic labeling is necessary for automatic, individual tracking of pigs. The loss rates and performance of one plastic and three electronic ear tags were analysed on 16 commercial farms with a total of 9,325 experimental animals in two different housing and production systems in each case. The functional reliability of the electronic ear tags was very good. The ear tag loss rate ranged from 1.5 to 4.1 % in the four different housing and production systems. There were no significant differences between ear-tag types and housing and production systems in terms of either functional reliability or loss rates.

    Early lameness detection in dairy cows with electronic activity sensors (Früherkennung von Lahmheit bei Milchkühen mit elektronischen Aktivitätssensoren)

  • Animal activity
  • Pedometer
  • About: 

    Lameness can be classified by visual assessments, but this method requires time and great experience especially in large herds. An electronic device for early recognition of lameness is desirable, not only for veterinary reasons, but also for the farmer. ALT-pedometers (ALT = activity, laying behaviour, (outside) temperature; pedometer = step counter) are a proved recording system for determining movement activity, which are used most of all for oestrus detection. The question, how far ALT-pedometers can help to detect lameness is content of this article. It is based on methodical preinvestigations for a doctorate concerning this issue.

  • About: 

    Die Aspekte Qualitätsmanagement und Dokumentation haben durch die europäische und nationale Lebensmittel- und Futtermittelgesetzgebung sowie durch Handelsvereinbarungen wie etwa QS grundlegende Auswirkungen auf landwirtschaftliche Betriebe. Besonders die sich daraus ergebenden Auswirkungen auf Arbeitszeit und Kosten sind von entscheidender Bedeutung für die Akzeptanz des Themengebietes bei der Landwirtschaft. Auf Basis eines Schweinemastbetriebes sollen diese Fragestellungen analysiert werden.
    The article is about the costs and labour input for the required documentation in the production of fattening pigs. It presents an exemplary farm for analyzing these questions.

  • About: 

    The fattening and carcass performance test for pigs in Bavaria has been organised as a model of integrated pig production. The data of 3500 pigs of the LPA Schwarzenau and of 6000 pigs of the LPA Grub are gathered and evaluated in the information system LuZ with the help of a definite ISO-transponder number, which the piglet gets at the 24th day of life at the piglet raising station Baumannshof. At the age of 56 days the pigs are brought to the test station Grub. All the identifications for animal weights or food-allocations by electronic weighing-machines, for the carcasses, the carcass-grading, pH-values and printing of a carcass labels are performed by the transponder in the ear-tag. Within the DV-network at Grub there is the possibility for the different “leading PCs” or off-line-devices to communicate to join the different data sets for each animal by its transponder number. The implementation of a Dynamic Link Library makes it possible to integrate external software products and independent data-storage in the DV-network of Grub.

  • About: 

    With the ARPAnet in 1965 the development of the today's Internets started. Today for many sections of the population the Internet is an often used medium. Within the agricultural production area it is unfortunately still very reservedly used. Also here many application types are conceivable. In this paper I would like to present my beginning project of realizing a web based system that enables individual cost calculations for agricultural enterprises as well as horizontal comparisons. According to a cost accounting model a network plan has to be created which enables operational cost accounting. The necessary data are inferred thereby from a central data base. At the end this system should be completed with further analysis components of operational cost accounting.
