"Daily milk yield data have been shown to aid in early detection of ketosis, left displaced abomasum, and digestive disorders on fresh cows. However, in a recent University of California Cooperative Extension study, we observed that only 3 out of 45 dairies in California incorporated this technology on their operations. One of the challenges associated with using daily milk weights data to identify cows with health disorders is to ensure the correct identification of cows at milking."
