Healthy Heifer: A precision solution for dairy farmers
Strong and healthy replacement heifers are crucial to the longevity and productivity of a milking herd. Supporting timely, informed and accurate interventions, the Healthy Heifer project seeks to create a unique, precision solution giving dairy farmers access to real-time data on young livestock.
Delivering on-site information about an individual animal’s genetics, nutrition, environment, activity and health, the novel technology will not only improve heifer health but also UK dairy farming sustainability. Reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions over the rearing period and moving the sector closer, faster to its net zero goal.
Using agri-tech solutions to improve the health and wellbeing of dairy heifers, the Healthy Heifer project provides dairy farmers with the insights and information into animal health they need to make better-informed decisions, boost productivity and efficiency on-farm.
