Toelichting (Engels) Developments in livestock production systems are driven by (internal) farm and sector opportunities, market & consumer demands, national and international legislation and societal issues, as covered by the sustainability concept People, Planet & Profit. This course focuses on technological aspects and processes in livestock production systems and on development and application of new technology to support realization of sustainable animal production systems. In this course these systems are mainly delimited to on farm production and directly related links in the food chain. The interactions and relations between the biological entities (at animal level), technological artifacts and human management play a central role. The course deals with technological aspects of five sustainability themes and with three engineering themes. The five sustainability themes are animal welfare (animal needs & surroundings), animal health, and environment (gaseous emissions and animal waste handling), food safety, and food quality. The three engineering themes are 1) building physics and indoor climate 2) mechanics of building constructions (statics) and 3) farm management and logistics. For each theme current systems and technology are described, in depth knowledge on the technology is presented, management and control of related problems are dealt with as well as the latest innovations in each area. Typical examples of subjects are 1) constraints for the design of sustainable systems including societal demands, 2) sensors and information technology for quality monitoring, product processing, milking and feeding systems, 3) the concept of precision livestock farming, 4) management of the aerial environment of animals, 5) minimization of emission hazardous gases, and waste processing.
