One method to improve durably animal welfare is to select, as reproducers, animals with the highest ability to resist or tolerate infection. To do so, it is necessary to distinguish direct and indirect mechanisms of resistance and tolerance because selection on these traits is believed to have different epidemiological and evolutionary consequences.

Because accurate characterization of health state is important for managing dairy herds, we propose to validate the use of a linear state-space model (LSSM) for evaluating monthly somatic cell scores (SCSs). To do so, we retrieved SCS from a dairy database and collected reports on clinical mastitis collected in 20 farms, during the period from January 2008(More)
We present a novel approach to parameterised curve detection. The method is based on the generalised Radon transform, which is traditionally applied to a 2D edge/line map. The novelty of our method is the mapping of the original 2D image to a 3D orientation space, which then forms the input for the Radon transform. The orientation space representation can(More)
