A growing number of (farmer) organizations in the world have overview of technology to be used on dairy farms.
Worldwide there are a number of large projects aimed at Precision Dairy Farming. You will find some of these underneath.
D4Dairy: An EU project aimed to provide digital support to dairy management via a data-driven, networked information system, exploiting the potential of advanced technologies (mid-infra-red spectra, genome information, …) and advanced data analysis to further improve animal health, nutrition, animal welfare and product quality.
GenTore: An EU project aimed at the development of innovative genome-enabled selection and management tools to empower farmers to optimize cattle resilience and efficiency (R&E) in different and changing environments.
