Precision sheep management in the uplands

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


My presentation will focus on the recent initiatives around the implementation of Precision Livestock Farming tools and
innovative technologies in upland sheep systems management in the UK and beyond. Based on examples from current and past research projects and collaborations, among them the H2020 project TechCare (Innovative technologies along the value chain to improve small ruminant welfare management), H2020 Thematic Network Sm@RT (Small Ruminant Technologies), and InnovateUK SmartSheep, the presentation will address the various management challenges faced by upland sheep farming industries, and propose examples of potential solutions based on innovative and/or digital technologies. The presented ideas and initiatives will allow the upland sheep farming sector to rethink how technologies could be embraced in such systems, and what challenges or barriers lay ahead.
