Cornell Fraud

The fraudulent actions of Cornell University against the CoPulsation™ Milking System are not a first for the university. In 1992 Cornell University published two studies in the Journal of Dairy Science on the topic of stray voltage in dairy herds. Michael Behr, Ph.D., a Forensic Economist, was successful in forcing the university to release the raw data behind those two studies. Behrís evaluation of those two studies yielded a singular solid conclusion Ė the research is a fraud. A multi-hundred document produced by Behr provides a thorough statistical analysis supporting the conclusion of fraud. Behrís analysis has stood up to numerous legal proceedings.

Behr summarized a comparison of the Cornell actions in the stray voltage studies to those actions taken in the Cornell study of the CoPulsation™ Milking System with the following:

Behr: Cornell promoted its relationship with big-money public utility interests
Gehm: Cornell promoted its relationship with big-money dairy equipment and pharmaceutical interests

Behr: Research results contrary to field experience and other research
Gehm: Research results contrary to field experience and other research

Behr: Attempt to give conclusions validity by using a "long" time period (full lactation)
Gehm: Attempt to give conclusions validity by using a "long" time period (one year)

Behr: Samples biased toward non-significance by using lower producing cows in the 0 voltage group
Gehm: Samples biased toward non-significance by using Staph aureus cows in the CoPulsation™ systems group

Behr: Research results published in the Journal of Dairy Science
Gehm: Research results published in the Journal of Dairy Science

Behr: Obstructionist behavior from Cornell in acquisition of public information raw data
Gehm: Obstructionist behavior from Cornell in acquisition of public information raw data

Behr: Unresponsiveness from Cornell administration upon confrontation
Gehm: Unresponsiveness from Cornell administration upon confrontation

Behr: No response from Journal of Dairy Sciences (Les Hanson> after being informed of problems
Gehm: No response from Journal of Dairy Sciences (John Fugay> after being informed of problems

Behr: Probable invalid systems and procedures re input of electricity
Gehm: Invalid equipment and procedures in the conventional systems control sample
