Smart Dairy Farming: a cooperative perspective – Presented by Ynte de Vries, Foundation SmartDairyFarming

Smart Dairy Farming: a cooperative perspective – Presented by Ynte de Vries, Foundation SmartDairyFarming, at the Smart Farming Conference, Jun 29, 2017, in Venlo, The Netherlands.

SmartDairyFarming is developing a digital highway for farm-generated data. With the farmer’s consent, a data hub is used as a platform to release this data for a variety of applications. This information is retrieved from various sensors and other technological devices on the farm. The data can be applied in decision-making models, process descriptions and advisory products that farmers can use to take better-informed management decisions relating to animal health, fertility and nutrition. Making better decisions will in turn lead to healthier, longer-lived cattle with higher lifetime production.

Smart FarmingAbout Smart Farming Conference

The Smart Farming Conference is part of the first global Innovative Food-Agri Event – a two-day event (Jun 28-29, 2017) that includes:

Scope: After mechanisation, the introduction of mineral fertiliser and the industrialisation of production processes, connectivity and data management are now set to unleash the next revolution in the history of farming, smart farming. Precision agriculture has been an evolving reality for some time, but It has now reached a point where it is not only possible to collect vast quantities of data, but also  to control different pieces of equipment or monitor individual animals, the Internet of Things. A growing number of farmers are starting to adopt digital technology and data-driven innovations.

What new business models will be successful, and will new players disrupt the traditional farming landscape? How to deal with change (from traditional farmer to smart farmer)? How to identify and develop innovative methods for sustainable food production? The conference will answer this kind of questions.

Focus topics:

  • Available technologies for Farming 4.0 (drones (Air / Land), sensors /sensor network, Internet of Things, Big Data, Robotics, Machine Learning/ Artificial Intelligence, etc)
  • Precision agriculture
  • 3D Printing / Additive Manufacturing and many more…
