High producing farm animals (dairy cows, beef cattle, veal calves, pigs, sheep etc.) are permanently challenged by a variety of factors: lack of proper nutrition (deficit/surplus), housing systems, infections and stress. The incidence, course and outcome of production diseases are changing continuously. Therefore new information on prevention, diagnosis and treatment of production diseases is needed. These problems are complicated by the discussion of animal welfare, the rapid changes in agricultural production and the economics of production. This complexity can only be analyzed, pushed forward or eventually solved by an interdisciplinary approach which can stimulate new ideas for research and collaboration. At the 10th International Conference on Production Diseases in Farm Animals 1998, about 120 scientists in the field of large animal science presented the results of their research in connection with this subject. The full papers of the key note lectures and the abstracts of the scientific presentations are published in this book. The abstracts provide scientists, veterinarians and other workers in animal husbandry with findings of on-going research. Over 20 full papers provide reviews of the developments in the different disciplines in relation to the production diseases in modern husbandry.
