There is a need to address key health problems that impact the health, welfare, and productivity of dairy cattle managed under organic production systems, while simultaneously meeting the philosophical principles of environmental sustainability that underlies the emergence and growth of this production system. The objective of this research is to quantify the potential efficacy of alternative treatments that will enhance the health, welfare, and productivity of organic dairy cattle, while also meeting the goal of being environmentally safe and promoting environmental and economic sustainability.
