Table 6 Disease-adjusted lactation (DALact) days of life lost compared against morbidity-based and removal-inclusive (biological culling and death) cumulative frequency rankings of diseases, and the ranking of time lost to on-farm clinical disease alone (DLI). A rank of 1 indicates the highest cumulative frequency or most time lost versus a rank of 11 indicating the lowest cumulative frequency or least time lost

From: A comparison of a novel time-based summary measure of dairy cow health against cumulative disease frequency
