Sustainable Precision Animal Agriculture

precision animal3

Through the Sustainable Precision Animal Agriculture platform, we seek to provide Research, Extension and Education opportunities to help address critical opportunities and challenges associated with incorporating technologies into intensive and extensive animal production systems, the associated cropping systems responsible for feed production, and the food manufacturing systems responsible for delivering safe, affordable food to the growing population.

Testbed research facilities

We have five (5) testbed facilities available for research, teaching and extension activities focused on precision monitoring. To find the facility that meets your needs, click on the link below to search by species and available equipment.
