Future of Farming is Digital

Faculty, staff, and students at the School of Veterinary Medicine are merging old knowledge with new technology to shape the future of modern dairy farming.

Our Food Animal Production Medicine program has developed eight iPad apps that help improve efficiency and knowledge access for dairy farmers in the field. The apps give farmers instant feedback on various measurements, immediate data uploads, virtual farm tours and more.

This is one more example of how we continuously push to find new ways to help improve on existing methods of understanding. Whether it’s in the hospital or on the farm, we’re always looking to utilize new technology in new and exciting ways to transform animal care.
