EIP innovation projects

The promoted innovations should be new, valuable, unique, and (socially or sustainable) useful. At the same time innovation projects are (in accordance with EU EIP guidelines) both "ideas that are successfully put into practice'' and ''actions that are geared towards innovation ''. 

Projects 2nd Call:

Optimized Pasture Management-smart grazing

Optimized pasture management - smart grazing

Optimized Pasture Management-smart grazing back to overview

Project description

The feeding basis of milk production has dramatically changed in SH and nationwide in the last decades. The grazing of dairy cattle has been increasingly replaced by intensive livestock housing with feeding of grass- and maize silage and concentrated feed. As a consequence there lacks a well-founded and scientifically sound data basis for assessing pasture services in SH. The OG " Optimized pasture management - smart grazing " has set itself the goal to close this data gap and to correct existing deficiencies in pasture expertise in the country .

The overall objective of the OG is to gather the performance potential of pasture in terms of yield and quality in the main landscape-types of Schleswig Holstein.

From this measured data, a model "smart grazing" (a forecasting tool) should be developed that is able to operate in conjunction with the predictions of the German Meteorological Service to provide real-time data on current growth rates and feed quality parameters on a high technical level (mobile app) and, together with pilot-farms, identify landscape type-specific problems of grazing and provide solutions for these.
