Experimental field: DigiMilch


The DigiMilch project is being carried out by the Bavarian State Research Centre for Agriculture, with the Technical University of Munich as a partner. DigiMilch is one of the 14 experimental fields funded by the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture.

The experimental field DigiMilch has set itself the goal of demonstrating the existing digital solutions for the field and barn. These are additionally checked for their suitability for family-run farms. The operational experience is recorded, existing gaps are presented and tips for possible solutions are developed. This process is accompanied by a forum of economic partners and manufacturers, intended to improve the networking of individual systems by reducing incompatibilities, an important concern in practise.

A team of 19 employees scrutinizes the entire process chain of milk production, starting with the management of agricultural fertilization and the calculation of sensor-based yield, through the feeding management to networked barn technology and animal-specific sensors. In cooperation with start-ups and renowned agricultural engineering companies new products are developed and tested.

Dr. Isabella Lorenzini works as a project manager at DigiMilch. She studied Veterinary Medicine at the Ludwig-Maximilian University in Munich and then did her doctorate in the subject of "automatic lameness detection in dairy cows“.
