AWRN-funded workshop: “Current developments in Precision Livestock Farming Technologies”

DATE: NOVEMBER 20, 2020

Animal Welfare Research network organizes the workshop “Current developments in Precision Livestock Farming (PLF) technologies: What can we measure and what are the welfare benefits and challenges?”. The aim of this one-day, online workshop is to get an overview of current PLF developments (from promising proof-of-concepts to commercially available technologies) and to discuss, through a series of presentations and group activities, their potential to improve animal welfare and how challenges related to their use can be addressed.

The workshop will run from 10am to approximately 4pm. Speakers include Prof. Mark Rutter (Harper Adams University), Dr. Isabelle Veissier (INRAE) and Dr. Emma Baxter (SRUC). The presentations will touch on a range of topics, from introductions to PLF and the use of technology in welfare monitoring, welfare benefits and potential risks, to recent developments including the monitoring of facial expressions in pigs. The workshop will include opportunities to network, as well as a combination of breakout-group activities and general discussions.

Time: From 10:00 a.m. to 16:00 p.m.
