Abstract

Animals have been implicated as an important source of injury for farm household members. Little is known, however, about the specific activities associated with the animal/livestock operations that place a person at increased or decreased risk for injuries. The primary aim of this case-control study was to identify which dairy cattle operation activities (that is, milking, feeding, cleaning barns, trimming and treating feet, dehorning, assisting with difficult calvings, and doing treatments) were associated with an increased or decreased risk of injury. We found milking to have the greatest increase in risk for injury. The ratios for increasing hours per week spent at milking (0, 1-10, 11-20, 21-30, 31-63) were 1.0, 2.3, 5.5, 10.9, and 20.6, respectively. We also found an increased rate ratio associated with trimming or treating hooves (rate ratio = 4.2).
