As a first step, this project will organize a one-day symposium entitled "Innovations to Tackle Livestock Production Challenges" that will focus on the following topics:
The last session of the day will provide an overview of the full spectrum of innovations and a vision for the next generation of farming systems.
After the symposium, the information will be consolidated and synthesized to produce concrete deliverables (technical datasheets, webinars, and videos), enabling the transfer of this knowledge to Québec industry stakeholders. In addition, three half-day information sessions will be organized for the benefit of MAPAQ consultants at regional offices in Chaudière-Appalaches, Centre-du-Québec, and Montérégie.
From 2020 to 2021
This project will allow us to share information on the most recent innovations from Québec and elsewhere so it can be incorporated into future livestock systems.

Assessing an electrostatic precipitator system designed to improve air quality and, thereby, worker health and animal welfare.
The objective of this study is to create a cheap, effective, ecofriendly alternative to the use of antibiotics on chicken farms by developing a new formula using yeasts, enzymes, and organic acids.
When designing tanks, the total volume of material to be stored must be calculated. This guide provides a comprehensive calculation method that takes into account volumes of bedding added as well as feed and water losses.
