Precision Livestock Farming: Process Engineering in Animal Production

The main topics of research and teaching in 'Livestock Technology' range from supply technology (for feed, water and air) to environmentally friendly utilisation of by-products (especially liquid manure and exhaust air). Technical development focuses on amimal wellfare in husbandry ('resting', 'walking', 'feeding'...) and product extraction (e.g. 'milking'). The aims of technical developments are to improve animal welfare, to use resources efficiently and to reduce environmental pollution. The Faculty of Agriculture at the University of Bonn has played an important role in scientific research in animal husbandry in Germany for a certain time. The knowledge and insights gained from this research are demonstrated and communicated to students in the specialised courses of study. This is  achieved in particular by communicating the results from current research projects in teaching. The digitalisation of animal husbandry ("Precision Livestock Farming"), sensor-based recording and computer-assisted evaluation of animal behaviour as well as conclusions about animal welfare are also important components of research and teaching.
