Keywords: animal welfare; dairy calf; bobby calf
This research identifies reasons for mortality and morbidity in dairy calves for slaughter (bobby calves), and potential new welfare indicators. Results are based on observations of calves, information from questionnaires given to farmers, transport operators and slaughter plant personnel. The research links calf mortality to on-farm management practices, transport, time in calving season, and slaughter schedule. The results will be used for initiatives to further improve calf welfare.

It is very difficult to say what the New Zealand primary industry and food system landscape will look like in 2050 and 2100. Global socio-economic trends may proceed along a highly globalised and sustainable pathway with subsequent low (or zero) greenhouse gas emissions and relatively mild climate changes; or they may proceed along a highly regionalised and resource-intensive pathway where greenhouse gas emissions are high and unabated and climate changes are at the top end of current projections. Or, it might be somewhere in between. Each one of these global pathways will have local, national and international consequences for the New Zealand primary industry and food system landscape.
