We continue to conduct studies of nutrition and milk quality, as well as evaluations of precision farming technologies for both industry and public bodies.
Digital dairy project
The Digital Dairy Chain project will develop a world-class business innovation and research platform to optimise and decarbonise dairy manufacturing. It will facilitate a skills pipeline and encourage new, value-added product development.
Led by SRUC, a consortium of research, commercial and civic partners will work together to digitalise and integrate the whole dairy value chain. The project is supported by a £21 million investment from the UKRI’s Strength in Places Fund and aims to create 600 new jobs.
Environment and soils
Propagating innovations for more resilient dairy farming in the Atlantic Area.
Precision Livestock Farming (PLF) technologies to reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions intensity of pasture-based cattle systems.
Is it possible to grow all feed requirements for the dairy cow on the farm?
Langhill breeding study
The project's database provides 40 years' worth of scientific records for research.
Health and quality
Keeping Cow with Calf
The project seeks to establish evidence based information on cow-with-calf dairying systems.
Tanzania milk quality
Developing analytical and advisory networks to improve milk quality from smallholder dairy farms in Tanzania.
Identifying best sensor technologies to deliver verifiable health & welfare, environment and processing quality benefits for dairy production.
