Calcium (Ca) requirement increases tenfold upon parturition in dairy cows & buffaloes and its deficiency leads to a condition called milk fever (MF). Estimation of losses is necessary to understand the depth of the problem and design preventive measures. How much is the economic loss due to MF? What will be the efficiency gain if MF is prevented at the advent of a technology? We answer these questions using survey data and official statistics employing economic surplus model. MF incidence… Expand
Prevention Is Better Than Cure: Experimental Evidence From Milk Fever Incidence in Dairy Animals of Haryana, India
Calcium deficiency in high yielding bovines during calving causes “milk fever” which leads to economic losses of around ₹ 1,000 crores (US $ 137 million) per annum in Haryana, India. With increasingExpand

Quantifying Economic Losses due to Milk Fever in Dairy Farms
TLDR
Taking into account the observed prevalence of milk fever, the population of milch cows and buffaloes and the per animal loss, the economic losses arising from milk fever has been estimated to be of Rs 40.62 crore in the state, which is a substantial damage to the dairy farming community. Expand
Quantity and Value of Milk Losses Due to Technical Constraints - A Case of Crossbred Cows in North-Eastern States of India
TLDR
Tackling the constraints will increase milk production of the region by six per cent and will improve milk productivity and generate surpluses, according to the estimates. Expand
Economic impact of reduced milk production associated with Johne's disease on dairy operations in the USA
TLDR
An examination of the economic impacts of Johne's disease indicated that reduced milk production, associated with the determination of dairy operations as Johne-positive, reduced consumer surplus by $770 million ± $690 million, and resulted in a total loss to the US economy in 1996. Expand
Evaluation of producer and consumer benefits resulting from eradication of bovine viral diarrhoea (BVD) in Scotland, United Kingdom.
TLDR
The distributional effects on actors in the milk market of a hypothetical programme to eradicate bovine viral diarrhoea from the Scottish dairy herd are evaluated using an economic welfare methodology and found that the results are sensitive to changes in yield gains made by owners of the infected herd. Expand
Economic impacts of reduced milk production associated with epidemiological risk factors for Johne's disease on dairy operations in the USA
An examination of the economic effects of epidemiologic risk factors for Johne's disease identified regional and herd size differences as having the greatest impact. Having dairy cows that were notExpand
Economic impacts of reduced pork production associated with the diagnosis of Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae on grower/finisher swine operations in the United States.
TLDR
An examination of the economic impacts of the diagnosis of Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae on grower/finisher swine operations indicated that reduced pork production reduced consumer surplus by $53+/-52 million, and resulted in a total loss of $32+/-30 million to the US economy in 1995. Expand
Economic analysis of vaccination to control bovine brucellosis in the States of Sao Paulo and Mato Grosso, Brazil.
TLDR
An economic analysis showed that vaccinating 90% of the replacement heifers aged 3-8 months of age offers the best economic performance in a vaccination program against bovine brucellosis if compared to vaccination rates of 70% and 80%. Expand
Prevention of milk fever: nutritional approach.
TLDR
The use of negatively balanced cation-anion rations during the late dry or prepartum period requires excellent monitoring and management and anionic salts prevents milk fever by acidifying the blood to restore tissue responsiveness to the PTH. Expand

TLDR
The physiological factors that cause milk fever and strategies for prevention of milk fever are discussed, focusing on the effects diet cation-anion difference can have on tissue sensitivity to parathyroid hormone. Expand
An assessment of the economic costs to the U.S. dairy market of antimicrobial use restrictions.
TLDR
It is found that potential policies restricting AMU would have a minor effect at the market level, which would lead to a slight increase in costs of production, borne by both consumers and farmers through higher milk prices and lower milk production. Expand
