Objective: This training programme has been conceptualized to acquaint students about status and scope of dairy farm mechanization and automation, farm data management, application of ICT tools and artificial intelligence in production and health management of dairy animals and technological advancements in commercialization of Indian traditional dairy products.
Pre Event Description :
In recent years, traditional dairy farms have given way to commercial dairy farms with higher average production, adoption of newer farming tools and techniques. If implemented & practiced scientifically, commercial dairy farming is capable of giving a higher return on the investment. Dairy farm mechanization and automation is one of such important attributes of modern commercial dairy farms. Automation is the use of mechanical and electronic equipment to increase work efficiency. The automatic systems most commonly used in dairy production systems includes identification, milking, cleaning, feeding, reproduction, health management, welfare assessment and better social circumstances for the dairy farmers. To improve productivity at the farm level of investments in new technology are needed and across the globe, the trend towards fewer, larger dairy operations continues. Therefore, looking into the importance of the topic CAAST-NAU is organizing a three days training programme on “Dairy Farm Mechanization and Automation” at NAU, Navsari during February 19-21, 2020.
