Dairy Farming Technologies

The dairy industry leads the technology in precision livestock farming. Growing public concern to animal wellbeing also motivates this process. Technological progress advances the development and use of sensors that can provide detailed on-line data about the individual cow in the herd regardless its size. This approach is expected to improve animal health, wellbeing and profitability of the dairy operation. This theme will focus on new ideas, new sensors, and integration of new monitoring technologies that support Precision Dairy Farming and it will discuss the potential benefits of this precision feeding of dairy cows.

Milk can be used to make a wide range of products which combine the features of being highly palatable, nutritious and at the same time high-quality. Indeed, milk is also known as `white gold'. On the other hand, its high cost price includes the necessity of using milk to make products which have a high added value. The result is that the processing industry is very important to the dairy farming sector, far more important than in many other sectors of agriculture. In the dairy industry, the processing operations have to satisfy high technical and quality standards.
