8th European Conference on Precision Livestock Farming (EC-PLF)
12-14 September 2017 - NANTES
The European Conference on Precision Livestock Farming takes place every two years. The aim of this Conference is to exchange knowledge and experience through an open discussion and to support progress in this field.
Today Precision Livestock Farming (PLF) technology is a reality. It has the potential to support and benefit animal feed suppliers, human-food retailers and other players along the livestock supply chain. This 'cross-disciplinary' approach is that 'animal-focused' scientists, engineers, companies as well as farmers' organizations have interacted and combined their strengths and views.
Nowadays in modern livestock farming, the need for reliable automated systems is compelling for reasons, such as biosecurity, the environment, husbandry practices, feeding practices, and their direct links to animal health.
ICT-AGRI 2 questionnaire
End of October 2017
As you may know, ICT-AGRI 2 is currently writing a SRIA (strategic research and innovation agenda). The aim of this SRIA is to define the current and future challenges that the Information and Communication Technologies will encounter in the EU agriculture and food systems. The aim of this document is to help the European Commission defining its research and project funding priorities.
To improve this document, we created a questionnaire to collect the opinion of all stakeholders (farmer, traders, consumers, etc.) regarding these challenges and their priorities. To help us in this task, could you please participate in this questionnaire, as well as sending the link to all interested persons. Deadline is for the end of October 2017. To fill in this questionnaire of 15 questions takes less than 5 minutes.
