    Abstract

    This paper summarises the results of sensor technology status survey and questionnaire among medium and large dairy farms of Finland (N = 192). The purpose of the study was also to define specific needs and challenges related to on-farm milk fat/protein and on-farm silage composition analysers. Findings showed that responded Finnish medium-size dairy farms have high utilization rate of various on-farm sensor technologies. The importance vs present performance gap was high for the silage measurement solution and especially its response speed and accuracy. Similarly, the need is for accurate and fast milk fat/protein sensors, although the importance -performance gap depends significantly on the type of milking system used in the farm.
