The transparent cow

The concept of Smart (Animal) Farming is associated with hopes of a quantum leap in livestock farming. But do these promises also convince farmers? The Kleffmann Group made the reality check and asked producers about their usage behaviour.

In theory, digital technologies in cowsheds offer a number of advantages: increased milk yield, optimization of concentrated feed and early detection of animal diseases. However, the adaption of new technologies is not a matter of course. Required expenses in time and money are conditions of investment that farmers recognize as additional benefits of digital farming solutions. So, do farmers adopt new technologies in their daily work?

Based on the new Kleffmann study “Smart Animal Tracker” Karen Gralla, Global Key Account Manager of the Kleffmann Group, will give insights into the digital usage behaviour of farmers at the Digital Farming Conference on May 9, 2019 in Berlin. Gralla will talk about the distribution and usage of smart devices in livestock farming. The final results of the study will be available in the summer.

On May 9, 2019, numerous experts, practitioners, and decision-makers will discuss the latest developments in smart farming and agriculture 4.0 at the Digital Farming Conference 2019 in Berlin. Among the prominent list of speakers are Julia Klöckner, Federal Minister of Food and Agriculture, and Bernhard Krüsken, Secretary General of the German Farmers' Association. Kleffmann supports the Digital Farming Conference - # dfc19 - as a partner! We cordially invite you to join us in discussing the latest trends and challenges in the field of digitized agriculture and to get to know exciting application examples from Agriculture 4.0.
