Animal technologies

The development of animal-based technologies began with individual cow identification and was followed by sensors that measure characteristics of the individual cow. These sensors have included activity, weight changes and blood, milk and rumen parameters that may assist in supporting the health, welfare and reproductive management of individual dairy cows. Many of the sensors that are available for monitoring the reproductive activity, health and welfare status and feeding of dairy cows are described more fully in the EU Industry Innovations Report (PDF, 1.8MB).
