Precision Feeding and Management of Farm Animals, 2nd Edition
The increase in demand for animal products, due to recent demographic and dietary changes, as well as societal concerns related to the environment (climate change), reduction of greenhouse gases (GHGe), human health (non-use of antibiotics and synthetic growth promoters) and animal welfare (increase in organic production systems) has led to the development of precision livestock farming (PLF) technologies, which provide farmers with a real-time monitoring and management systems that could monitor real-time performance parameters, animal health and welfare, grazing patterns and animal feeding in a continuous and automated way, which offers the opportunity to improve productivity, evaluate production parameters and thus develop genetic selection strategies and/or detect health problems at an early stage.
The aim of this Topic is to address the above issues by exploring the potential of PLF and to discuss the possible benefits and risks arising from the use of such technologies.
