NMR collaborate to find key welfare indicators.

NMR is collaborating with key European partners to discover indicators of hunger, stress and disease from a milk sample.

HappyMoo is an Interreg North-West Europe funded project that aims to create tools to monitor the indicators of hunger, disease and stress in dairy animals. These tools will enable farmers, veterinarians and other industry professionals to evaluate the welfare of their cows, with the aim to reduce associated costs whilst also improving welfare.

The project sees milk recording organisations from the UK, France, Germany and Ireland working in collaboration with research centres across North-West Europe. The project which runs from October 2018 to April 2022, will focus on the use of standard milk recording data as well as the data produced from milk Mid-Infrared (MIR) spectroscopy.

HappyMoo sees NMR building on previous development work in the MIR spectral data and machine learning areas, with the aim of adding further value to milk recording services.
