Digitisation makes Milk Production more Sustainable and more Efficient


The use of sensors is becoming increasingly important in dairy production. In indoor livestock systems, sensors inform us inter alia about the behaviour and location of animals, as well as milk yield. At the interface with outdoor work, in forage production and in pasture management, information on forage quality is of key importance.

The linking of these two aspects offers enormous potential for structuring animal husbandry in a more efficient, more animal-friendly manner. Here, the focus lies on the refinement of pasture technologies and on health monitoring.
