In addition, alternative sensor systems are being evaluated in practice for their precision, technical feasibility and cost. At the same time, practice farms are monitored in parallel.

Animal welfare automated monitoring from barn to slaughterhouse
In dry years, therefore, fodder sorghum can contribute to sufficient forage production, especially on drought-prone plots. This project is funded by the 'EU blue deal' investments (VLAIO).The mixed crop silage corn-climbing bean can rely on the nitrogen fixation of the climbing beans, which reduces the need for fertilization.
Crop diversification for forage production on animal farms: focus on forage sorgho and mixed cropping of silage maize-climbing beans
Main research questionWhen scoring farm animal welfare, indicators often boil down to potential deficiencies. The COST Action ‘LIFT’ will provide the background for including positive welfare in farm animal welfare assessment.
Lifting farm animal lives – laying the foundations for positive animal welfare
Main research questionTo what extent can we use sensors and precision farming techniques to map the methane emissions of grazing cows? And how can we reduce those emissions via grazing management interventions? Within the research project 'Grastech' we set out to answer to this question.
Precision Livestock Farming (PLF) technologies to tackle greenhouse gas emissions from grazing cattle.
