New research will look at dairy welfare and technology
A new research collaboration at McGill University and the University of Quebec in Montreal will explore the role of artificial intelligence in promoting dairy cattle welfare.
It will be led by Dr. Elsa Vasseur of McGill’s Department of Animal Science and Abdoulaye Baniré Diallo of UQAM’s Department of Computer Science.
“Our research will allow us to assess how modifications to the cow’s physical environment and management impact welfare and longevity outcomes, and how the digital environment enhances end users’ abilities to improve the cow’s physical and psychological experience while giving new keys to the dairy industry for ensuring its sustainability,” says Vasseur.
