Olli Koskela, Iivari Kunttu and Ilpo Pölönen research group: Water consumption meter

Although the water demand of cattle has been studied quite extensively, individual water intake is still rarely measured. The research develops equipment suitable for the continuous monitoring of the number of plots per animal, the continuous individual placement behavior of which can be used to monitor welfare at the individual and livestock level. Water intake information may also be useful in assessing the feed performance of cows.
