[en] The OptiMIR project aims to improve the sustainability of the dairy sector by providing milk producers with new tools enabling them to manage the cow’s fertility, feeding, health, pollutants, and milk quality. Data provided by milk recording organizations and recorded in different environments will be pooled and used to identify the links between animal status and milk composition changes. The entire MIR milk spectrum will be used as indicator of the cows’ status in order to 1) reduce production costs 2) give an access to high added value market and 3) reduce the environmental impact.
OptiMIR is a 5 years project involving 5 research units, 11 milk recording organizations from Belgium, France, Germany, Ireland, Luxembourg, and United Kingdom. The project is co-financed by INTERREG IVB program.
