Improvement in milk production and udderhealth following correction of stray voltage on computer feeders
Diagnosis and correction of stray voltage on farms is important, as was shown here on a 130-cow Holstein dairy farm which had installed computerized grain feeders in 1986. This may be especially true when cows can choose to avoid the source of shocks, and this choice affects production. Major production and disease losses in dairy cattle were strongly associated with stray voltage, and improvement followed its elimination on the farm in this study.
