Event Description

Join us as we explore practical applications of dairy automation and management using sensor based data. This conference will examine the state of the art technology available today, and the limitless possibilities for the future.

Precision Dairy management is bringing about a new model for labour efficient dairy production as shown with the development of robotic milking, which dramatically reduces labour requirements. Going beyond robotic milking, precision technology can monitor cow health and welfare as well as productivity through level of activity, body weight changes, udder health and milk composition, thereby defining animal needs that can be met through robotic equipment that has traditionally been met though human care and labour.

Objectives:

Bring together the best technology in precision dairy management in the world

Provide a sharing environment for researchers, technologists, developers and producers to expand their knowledge of precision management technology.

Stretch the boundaries of application of technology in improved management and welfare of dairy cattle

Who should attend?

Researchers, dairy industry personnel, farmers, veterinarians and anyone involved in the dairy industry should attend to exchange information and learn about the latest sophisticated technologies for milking, herd management, herd health, and advances in nutrition and reproductive management.
