Assistence Systems for Intelligent Cattle Husbandary - "CattleHub"

Digitalization and automation are of increasing importance in modern cattle farming. The “CattleHub” experimental field is intended to support the interdisciplinary development and establishment of assistance systems for all cattle farming. For this reason, digital technologies and sensors are examined and evaluated in six experimental areas. The results will be used to improve decision-making and animal welfare when using digital assistance systems.

Indikators for animal welfare - Fattening pigs

Since February 2014, livestock farmers in Germany have a legal obligation to carry out an internal company audit. Legislation requires the collection and assessment of "suitable animal-related characteristics" (animal welfare indicators)" in this context in § 11 (8) of the animal welfare act. (TierSchG, 2006), without giving details of their content, size and frequency of collection.

Automated data recording at livestock farming

Automated data recording at livestock farming enabels continuous online assessment of animal-related data, climate / environment data and construction data. To get an overview of the different systems on the market, a database is created, with which the systems are recorded and characterized in their functionality.
