    Provide contact voltage on water bowls of dairy cows predisposed to mastitis and determine the effect on this on their natural defenses against mastitis organisms. One of his major suggestions is the installation of an equipotential plane. Phillips, D. With the flow of stray neutral distribution current over and through the earth, one must consider the effects that this dangerous stray neutral distribution current have on an equipotential plane.

    Some quick points: the IEEE draft definitions are available on the working group website, already cited at the end of the article. Dairy milk is a huge industry in the USA. Electrical distribution in Europe is phase-to-phase and with the rare exception of electric shock from ground faults there is no stray voltage on European farms. Electric and gas utilities apply DC voltage to underground pipes to reduce corrosion, and the earth may be a return path along with old trolley car rails buried under pavement.

    Aneshansley, Ronald C. Since the metal floor is an integral part of the milking box, the cow is on an "equipotential plane" while in the stall and therefore protected from stray voltage during milking. Complex impedance of cows has been measured between 30 Hz and 60 Khz. The problems may be a high neutral resistance created by poor connections or the resistance of the wire itself. We continue publish material from previously funded research projects, provide advice to regulatory agencies and state organizations on the state of research and activities in the area often called 'Stray Voltage'.

State v. In Decembertests were conducted that finally confirmed that the concept of equipotential planes is a figment of the imagination Identifiers. The flow of current and the presence of electric fields on transmission and distribution overhead wires can result in induced currents in nearby metal objects.

Economic consequences occur when as little as 2 of 37 or 2 of 7 of the cows in a herd are afflicted by stray voltage.

Gorewit, N. Very few changes in behaviour were observed. Disadvantages of equipotential planes include that they: are difficult to install only reduce voltage to half on the gradient and may still leave a problem.

Stray currents

For safety reasons this approach is not recommended. Nelson, and G. Where the reference rod is placed i. Appendices Figures from: D. The concepts, ideas and recommendations contained within this paper are the opinions of the author. This committee has not been active in the last 2 years.

The results of the three testings showed stray voltage under 1.

Project Methods Develop instrumentation package for data collection and collect data from 8 dairy farms showing short duration electrical phenomena. In Ontario, metal robotic milking equipment systems are case grounded.

If any Effects of electrical voltage/current on farm animals book load causes a current flow in the secondary neutral to the barn as indicated by the clamp-on ammeter it is a result of interconnected volt loads or ground faults in the equipment.

I'll withdraw the speedy. In the Journal of Dairy Science articles, authors claim that results were based on 40 cows 10 cows per treatment group for complete lactations.

Checking volt loads in the barn: Place a clamp-on ammeter around the neutral to the barn service. Milk yield and composition. Based upon measurements made on more than eight farms, three types of temporal events have been characterized and their sources identified.

Research,vol 3. However, Utility companies are also very powerful financially and they would have to acknowledge culpability, and then change the way they transmit electricity to solve this issue. Michael Akers. Scott, R. Endocrine responses of cows to controlled voltages during milking.

Distributors can be found on the Internet. Neutral separation was viewed as a temporary measure in that it reduced system grounding of the distribution system, posed a potential hazard for linemen and was viewed as unsafe in the event of a transformer failure.

Scott, and R. Electrical shock during machine milking.
