SmartCow is an EU funded project whose purpose is to promote the coordinated use and development of European cattle research infrastructures and, thereby, streamline and stimulate research activities in the cattle sector, in particular in the area of sustainable production, including feed testing. FEFAC is member of the Stakeholders Advisory Board of SmartCow. Among the key deliveries, SmartCow will build a database of research infrastructures, including descriptions of the nature of the research that can be performed ((19) DOC 87). Participation in this inventory in the form of a questionnaire is open to any private or public research facilities. The interactive map will be set on SmartCow's website.
FEFAC and BFA are pleased to confirm the new dates of our XXIX FEFAC Congress which will be held on September 24-25, 2020 in Antwerp in the Queen Elisabeth Hall. We will shortly provide you with updated information regarding the draft programme and registration process.
