Abstract

The livestock sector, like other sectors, has a high environmental impact and we must find solutions to reduce it to accomplish the requirements for a more sustainable production system in line with the European Green Deal requirements. The aim of this paper is to show a case study in which it is evaluated the effect of PLF technology on the environmental impact of dairy cattle farming by using simulations of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA). This case study involves the use of pedometers for an improved detection of oestrus events in order to make more efficient the livestock activities and the related environmental impact. The results show that the application of LCA can work as a feasible approach to get insight in the significance of the environmental benefit of applying PLF tools on farms.
