While livestock farmers already use a range of innovative tools and technologies to help ease their workload, new precision livestock farming technologies go a step further, paving the way for a digital transformation in animal health.
From detection and monitoring tools, to vaccines technologies, these cutting edge technologies are set to become essential tools in the future to support farmers in optimising animal care, while ensuring better traceability and reducing environmental impacts.
But sustainable use of such technologies requires a high level of farmer skills and management to maximise their potential.
As such, tomorrow’s farmers need support to reap the benefits of these technologies.
In this event report, EURACTIV focuses on the next generation of Europe’s livestock farmers and what is needed for them to be able to innovate to meet the sustainability demands on the sector.
