Abstract
Animal health status in organic dairy farming does not in all respect meet consumers' expectations. Improvements are crucial to support consumers' confidence and their willingness to pay premium prices. Considering animal health as an emergent property of the whole farm system the presented project aims to increase the implementation of evidence based measures and to improve practice of health management. This will be achieved by a multidisciplinary and participatory approach to develop farm specific solutions regarding preventive measures and appropriate treatment strategies.
