Investigation of animal-specific stress in distinct climates

WP3 identifies heat stress indicators of dairy cows in distinct climates. Behavioural and physiological responses of individual animals to heat stress will be explored in order to define thresholds for the sensors, which measures the parameters. Sensor-based animal monitoring will be performed in selected barns in order to quantify the influence of different climatic conditions on the animal-individual welfare.

Leader WP3:
