Precision Farming : Enhancing Livestock Management

20 June 2024, 11 am (UTC+02:00)

Precision Livestock Farming (PLF) integrates various technologies into cohesive systems to monitor livestock in real-time and on an individual basis. It utilizes single or multiple tools to ensure precise monitoring, allowing farmers to track animal health, behaviour, nutrition and environmental conditions with accuracy and immediacy, in both intensive and extensive systems. This approach has the potential to optimize farming practices, enhance animal welfare, and contribute to more efficient and sustainable livestock production.

Agenda and presentations

  • Presentation by Xabier Diaz de Otalora Aguirre, Postdoc Researcher at the Insititute of Animal Science and Technology at the Polytechnic University of Valencia on PLF systems and how they tackle problems that have been traditionally difficult to manage on farms
  • Presentation by Michael Nørremark, Senior Researcher at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Aarhus University on farmers adaptation of agri-tech and digital solutions

The webinar will be moderated by Daiana de Oliveira, Professor in Farm Animal Welfare, Department of Biology and Environmental Science, Faculty of Health and Life Sciences, Linnaeus University, Sweden.
