Background Information of Sessions
|Title of session||Chair||Background of session|
|Blockchain: Is Blockchain the Answer for your Data Security and Data Exchange||Sener Celik||With blockchain one can confirm product authenticity and trace the source it came from. It can be used to make supply chains traceable. It also can facilitate safe exchange and storage of data. The session will explore the possiblities and experiences can be shared in the field of animal data and usage in food chain.|
|Data Analytics: What can bring new Anlyses Techniques for better Farm Results||Donah Berry||To be completed soon|
|Supporting Circular Economy: how does it affect the Breeding Goals?||Sophie Mattalia||Circular agriculture is based on the principle of optimizing the use of all biomass. The waste streams of one supply chain can be the raw materials for another. Participants are invited to submit papers that will highlight what the impact circular agriculture could have on breeding, breeding goals, and which traits it might affect.|
|Milk Analysis 2: Creating more Value from Milk Analysis||Steven Sievert||From recent developments, it is obvious that there is more to be gained from milk analysis in the strive for sustainable dairy farming. In several geographies new mathematical models have been implemented for enhanced monitoring of metabolic processes and animal health in dairy herds. This session aims at presenting recent progress and further opportunities with the use of milk data (possibly in conjucntion with other data) in optimizing animal production, especially in light of environmental and societal preconditions.|
|Management Tools to Support Circular Economy: Practical Herd Applications||Theun Vellinga||Circular economy: Two main principles are important in circular livestock farming:
|Animal identification||Jo Quigley||
Topics for the Animal Identification sessions are:
|New Milk Recording Methods and Services||Pavel Bucek and Kai Kuwan||In milkrecordig field a lot of developments are going on for recording and also on delivering servica to the farmers. In this session attention is paid on new developments.|
|Resilience and Efficiency in small Ruminants||Jean-Michel Astruc||Small ruminants are mostly reared in difficult environments such as mountains/hills, arid, humid or low forage resources areas. Additionally, small ruminants use rangelands and contribute to maintaining an open environment, improving biodiversity. To maintain these benefits in such environments, small ruminants need to be resilient and efficient. This session is mainly dedicated to recording and evaluation of efficiency and resilience traits, which is the core of the SMARTER European project. However, any contribution related to small ruminants and camelids is welcome.|
|Milk Analysis Workshop 1: Creating and Securing Value from milk analysis||Hélène Soyeurt||This workshop is a follow-up to the presentation session on Wednesday 10 June. It will focus on the encountered challenges and applied solutions in the development and implementation of new indicators: .
|Data Governance: How do Organizations deal with Stewardship of Farmer Data?||Robert Foudraine||For decades the dairy industry has led the livestock industry in terms of generation and use of data to improve genetics and herd management. As the use of sensor technologies has rapidly increased, so has the amount of data being generated from these new on farm tools. Machine learning approaches have brought new tools to data scientist allowing them to analyze vast quantities of data to determine relationships between the data and what is happening to the dairy cow. With a growing interest of companies in connecting databases and sharing data, discussions about who owns the data, who is the data shared with, and how is the data protected have become more frequent topics of discussion. This session will feature several speakers from different segments of the livestock industry outlining how they have addressed ownership, privacy, use, sharing and stewardship of the data in their respective organizations.|
|Bringing ICAR and Sensor System Manufacturer Together for Testing & Certification||Steven Sievert||Session is related to ICAR testing of sensor systems from the Steering Committee (innovative testing designs/plans) and from manufacturers (system designs and working with ICAR).|
|Milk Recording Workshop: Modern Tools for Milk Recording Management||Juho Kyntäjä and Xavier Bourrigan||The session will start with invited speakers, followed up with group discussions, finalized with an interactive general discussion.|
