The main objective of the project is to reappropriate and adapt an effective on-farm data collection technology, in order to promote this technology to all cow-calf producers in Quebec to facilitate their herd monitoring and improve the profitability of their business. More specifically:
Demonstrate that technologies greatly facilitate the acquisition of performance data on the farm, on batches of calves and breeding stock
Simplify, speed up, reduce errors in data capture
Develop an interface facilitating data integration
Automate the transfer of data collected on the farm to livestock management software, such as PATBQ, in order to optimize its use
Promote available technologies
Reintroduce PATBQ farms with a large number of cows.
