It is already 3 years ago that the 1st Precision Dairy Farming (PDF) successfully was organized at the Dairy Campus Leeuwarden. This year the 2nd PDF conference took place in Rochester, Minnesota (US) on the 18th and 19th of June. The conference includes topic on dairy digital trend in the industry, the largest robotic milking dairy in the USA, use of data from Dutch dairy producer, and veterinarian discussion on use of technology for dairy cow health monitoring.
At this 2nd version of the conference our colleague Mariska van der Voort presented her review paper “Unravelling the terminology and use of methods in data driven mastitis detection”. Besides one of our well known collaborating dairy farmer Ron gave a keynote, presenting his dairy farm and the technologies he uses.
The 3th PDF will be held in 2022 somewhere in Europe.
