What Innovations for What Livestock Farming Systems?

What Innovations for What Livestock Farming Systems?

Special INRA Issue Animal Productions


R. Baumont, S. Ingrand

Edition 2015

Based on general questions on the innovative conception and evaluation of systems, this number explores different levers of radical changes being toyed with in livestock farming: precision farming, industrial ecology, agro-ecology, with their sub-divisions (sensors fitted to the animals, fish farming with recirculated water, low input dairy systems). Two articles round out the panorama by looking at listing innovations in livestock farms in France and the diversified dynamics of innovation and change in Africa.
