Precision Livestock Farming (PLF) techniques and novel sensing technologies are having a major impact on the management of intensive systems to improve efficiency, reduce disease and improve welfare. However the deployment of technology into extensive grassland and rangeland systems has proved problematical due to issues of equipment and data costs, sensing of activities over a large scale and currently available technology.
Nevertheless solutions to these problems are now becoming available. In addition, there is potential for future wider uses in land management for environmental benefit, to reduce disasters from fire and flood and to inform policy.
BSAS Global, EAAP PLF study commission and the Stapledon Trust are organising two 90 minute webinars to consider these solutions and encourage development of PLF approaches in extensive systems.
The first webinar on the 17th November will concentrate on the current state of the art with presentations on the use of these technologies in grassland and range systems in Europe, Australasia, Africa and the Americas.
The second webinar on the 19th November will concentrate on beyond the state of the art to examine the future potential of PLF and sensing technologies in extensive systems. Studies will also be presented by companies developing systems of sensing, communication and storage of data and transfer of relevant information to producers and policy makers.
Each webinar will consist of short presentations with the ability to ask questions and make points on chat. These will be discussed in a final session
