For those of you who wish to view again or that were unable to attend, we are delighted to announce that the videos of both Part 1 and Part 2 are now available to view at your leisure.
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.
The first webinar, held on 17 November, was chaired by Ilan Halachmi and speakers included Paul Greenwood, Claire Morgan-Davies, Andres Cibils, and Andrew Dowsey.
The second webinar, held on 19 November, was chaired by Tony Waterhouse and speakers included Mark Jarman – Head of Agriculture at the Satellite Applications Catapult – Mark Trotter, and David Stevens. Plus there were 3 presentations from Future Potentials to include No Fence, Breedr, and Environment Systems.
