[Project] : The project proposes four case studies designed to explore and describe the ways in which animals leave work, leading to a more general understanding of the underlying socio-technical mechanisms.

[Consortium] : Technological advances have greatly increased the potential to collect livestock data automatically and at high frequency, at different scales and ever-lower costs

[Consortium] :The influence of environmental events experienced at an early age on the development of an individual's well-being and health is no longer to be ignored in livestock species. The mother's nutritional status, pre- and post-natal stress, mother's milk, solid food and its nature, the microbiota and social experience are all factors that shape the individual with more or less long-term effects.

[Consortium] :New agro-ecological practices will significantly alter farming methods and lead to more rational use of medicinal and phytosanitary inputs, conditions which could potentially affect the health and well-being of the animals. Under these conditions, pro- and antioxidant mechanisms are central to the adaptation of animals to their environment.

[Consortium] : les compromis ont toujours été au cœur des décisions pour la construction et la gestion des systèmes d’élevage. Toutefois la santé et le bien-être des animaux ne sont pas systématiquement ou clairement identifiés comme facteurs pris en compte dans l’établissement de ces compromis. Dans le cadre de ce consortium, nous nous intéressons particulièrement aux effets de placer la santé et le bien-être comme une performance clé dans la conception des systèmes d’élevage, dans la construction de nouveaux compromis et à l’évolution des compromis existants.

[Projet] : a number of studies are underway to design farming methods that encourage the young-adult bond. Among these, the rearing of calves by nurse cows is a ground-breaking innovation, developed and disseminated within socio-technical networks of grassland farmers.
