Description

As a first step, this project will organize a one-day symposium entitled "Innovations to Tackle Livestock Production Challenges" that will focus on the following topics:

  1. Emerging issues
  2. Buildings and manure management
  3. Climate emergency
  4. Livestock systems of the future

The last session of the day will provide an overview of the full spectrum of innovations and a vision for the next generation of farming systems.

After the symposium, the information will be consolidated and synthesized to produce concrete deliverables (technical datasheets, webinars, and videos), enabling the transfer of this knowledge to Québec industry stakeholders. In addition, three half-day information sessions will be organized for the benefit of MAPAQ consultants at regional offices in Chaudière-Appalaches, Centre-du-Québec, and Montérégie.

Objective(s)

  • Identify the most recent innovations in livestock production.
  • Organize a symposium with national and international experts to identify the best innovations from Québec and elsewhere.
  • Consolidate and synthesize the information collected so it can be disseminated as concrete deliverables to Québec producers and engineers.

From 2020 to 2021
