Precision Agriculture in Dairy Housing

Technology can be used to monitor many things on the dairy from estrus to locomotion, body condition, feed intake, lying time, and more. The challenge is to be sure the information gathered can lead to something meaningful to the management of the dairy. Topics will include the types of data that can be collected, options to collect it, how to sort out what is useful data, and finally using that data to enhance the management.

Program led by John Tyson, Penn State Extension Agricultural Engineer.

Presented by Dr. Jeffrey Bewley, Amanda Sterrett, Elizabeth Eckelkamp, and Lauren Mayo from the Department of Animal & Food Science at University of Kentucky.
