Intro to PLF

EU-PLF: Bright Farm by Precision Livestock Farming.

Precision Livestock Farming (PLF) develops management tools aimed at continuous automatic monitoring of animal welfare, health, environmental impact and production in real-time.

EU-PLF is an FP7 project funded by the European Union that aims to translate research results for PLF into a practical blueprint that benefits the animal, farmer, environment and consumer.  It is a four-year project that began in November 2012 and is executed by 21 research, industrial and business partners.
