Our soils provide us with not only food, but also a wide range of ecosystem services such as carbon storage and water storage. Due in part to the changing climate and intensive soil management, severa...
Field beans are an interesting alternative for imported soy in dairy production, but only if the beans are first heated. Those are the results from the ILVO-study within the EKOPTI project. Heating is...
Tractors running on biogas? Electricity and heat from solar panels? Heat from a heat pump? The recently-started Horizon 2020 project RES4LIVE aims at replacing fossil fuels on livestock farms with cos...
Dairy farmers can get up to 20% more grass (in dry matter) from their land by choosing new varieties
AEMON is looking for a way to automatically detect ammonia concentrations and eventually link that data to automatically-driven wind screens.
Research on methane emissions from dairy cattle at pasture
To what extent can we use sensors and precision livestock farming techniques to map methane emissions from grazing cows?
Protein savings through improvement of forage quality, precision feeding, and more efficient cows: that is the triple goal of project EKOPTI
Of the global greenhouse gas emissions from livestock production, 65% come from cattle farming. Methane is the most important greenhouse gas.
