Event description

Description

As the world demands more meat and other animal products, producers are moving towards more intensive, automated systems. The sector has to increase production while, at the same time, it faces challenges regarding animal health and welfare and environmental impact. Recent rapid developments in digital and sensor technologies could help to offer solutions.

On 26 September 2017 a Digital Innovation in Livestock Industry Innovation Forum organised by N8 AgriFood in conjunction with CIEL and STFC Food Network+, will bring together researchers working on livestock, engineering, image analysis and large-scale data, digital innovation and socioeconomics, with businesses, engineers, vets, farmers, policy makers and NGOs. The aim is to catalyse and develop collaborative research projects between industry and the N8 universities.

Topics covered will include:

  • Early disease detection and targeted use of antibiotics

  • Remote monitoring of livestock performance and automated decision making

  • Dealing with data

The event will be held at Newcastle University’s Cockle Park Farm, which is already a centre of excellence for research on non-ruminant livestock. The farm includes a purpose-built facility bringing the latest sensor-based and automated technologies for precision livestock farming, for the continuous monitoring of the performance, health and welfare of livestock. If required transport will be provided from Morpeth station

Please note attendance is by invitation only and subject to confirmation by N8 AgriFood.
