New Dairy Research Facility incorporates the work of expert @RISK user Dr. Jeffrey Bewley

The Kentucky Farm Bureau blog featured the work of expert @RISK user Dr. Jeffrey Bewley, who is a University of Kentucky dairy specialist and associate extension professor.

The story describes the new University of Kentucky dairy research facility that was built with cow comfort in mind, while being familiar enough to dairy producers so that the research is valuable for everyday operations. The facility uses technology to aid in Precision Dairy Farming, which Dr. Bewley explained to us at a previous Palisade Risk Conference (see slidedeck).

Dr. Bewley has been a longtime user of @RISK for risk models using Monte Carlo simulation. His work in Precision Dairy Farming aims to increase productivity for farms while making a comfortable environment for the cows. “We’re basically trying to improve the life of the animal and hopefully with this type of technology we can detect when cows are sick sooner so that we can intervene and have more chances at success,” Dr. Bewley explains in the story. “Our goal is to make a very, very comfortable environment for the cows.”
