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:
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.
From 2020 to 2021
This project will allow us to share information on the most recent innovations from Québec and elsewhere so it can be incorporated into future livestock systems.
