Table ronde élevage SIMA 2019

How AgTech increases the profitability of livestock farming

Round table offered by AXEMA and SIMA, organised with Réussir and INRA

For many years, technological innovations have been driving changes in the farming profession. Simulators, decisionmaking tools, robotic milking parlours or feeding systems, coordinated use of sensors, information and communication technology, automation, etc. - all of these have led to the coining of the term “precision farming”. These technologies are a major source of progress enabling changes in the farming profession. Because farmers can now delegate certain tasks or decisions, in part or in whole, they can aspire to a certain quality of life. These new technologies can also be very useful in improving animal welfare and limiting the use of antibiotics thanks to early detection of problems, thus minimising causes of inefficiency while reducing the volume of work (or number of hours on call). Animal welfare is a key factor in productivity, but so is the welfare of the farmer.
