All potential of a individual cow must be discovered for effective using of farm resources. That’s why each cow is evaluated and managed as an individual in precision dairy farms while conventional dairy farms applying herd management systems. The use of sensor-derived information and automation to fine tune farm management is increasing. Hypothetically these Technologies offer significant gains in labor efficiency and quality of decision making. The main purpose of this study is to describe precision dairy farming and its evolution; features of ideal precision dairy farming technology; most widely used precision dairy farming technologies and defining purposes of their usage.
