How to implement Precision Livestock farming ?
How could research contribute to on-farm practice? And how could suply and demand in uence the development and the use of PLF? The ATF and EAAP Special Session “How to implement Precision Livestock Farming?” on Monday August 31, 2015 in Warsaw will focus on these questions. Bringing research to practice will become increasingly important in research projects.
With this Special Session, the ATF and the EAAP intend to contribute to the understanding of the roles of demand and supply actors of the PLF chain and their interaction with scientists in innovation processes and application of PLF into practice. PLF is the management of livestock farming by continuous automated real-time monitoring/controlling of production/reproduction, health and welfare of livestock. Participants of EAAP are challenged to discuss with farmers, the agrochain industry, representatives of the European Commission and other experts how research could contribute to PLF on-farm and, how data of PLF devices could contribute to research.
The Animal Task force
The Animal Task Force (ATF) promotes a sustainable and competitive animal production in Europe. We are a public private partnership of experts from knowledge institutes and industry representative organisations from across Europe. We work closely together with EAAP on setting the European agenda for research and innovation in the animal domain. The year 2015 of ATF is focused on precision livestock farming, which is the basis for this Special Session.
