Replication Data for:Standing behavior and sole horn lesions: a prospective observational longitudinal study Weary, D.M.; Eriksson, H.K; Daros, R.R.; von Keyserlingk, M.A.G
Data from a prospective observational longitudinal study examining the relationship between sole hemorrhages or sole ulcers in peak to mid-lactation and time standing during the weeks around calving. A convenience sample of 8 dairy cattle herds were visited every other week, and animals without previous severe horn lesions and deemed sound at 4 to 8 wk before calving were enrolled. Standing behavior was measured with data loggers attached to a rear leg, and standing time and duration of the longest standing bout were determined for each cow. Standing behavior was summarized into 3 periods: before (d -14 to -2), around (d -1 to 1), and after (d 2 to 14) calving. Average daily standing time and average daily longest standing bout were determined for each cow and period.
