The Bright Animal Book
BrightAnimal was a two year EU-funded co-ordination and support action project on Precision Livestock Farming (PLF). It addressed the potential of PLF to contribute to a more efficient and profitable livestock industry, the optimum use of resources, improved animal health and welfare and to sustainability in agriculture.
BrightAnimal did not initiate new research into PLF. Instead it conducted a world-wide review of existing research, PLF practices and standards with a view to making recommendations on how PLF can be made more accessible to small and medium-sized producers.
