The goal of the GeTie project is to facilitate the collection and exchange of animal health and welfare data via modern media for those responsible in pig producing farms, thus making a contribution to sustainable, customer-oriented meat production.

The innovative character of the scientifically coordinated and accompanied joint project lies in the individual capturing and administration of data as well as the targeted control and release to various communication partners by the respective animal owner.

For the first time, a technical-organisational communication system regarding animal welfare efforts will be developed, evaluated and tested in the planned project. At the same time, the system will be evaluated by animal welfare label providers and recipients in order to determine the extent to which animal welfare efforts can be made visible and verified with the help of a web platform and associated app. The platform for all actors with animal welfare responsibility will be set up in such a way that it complements the existing IT systems in the animal feed and meat industry in a meaningful way.
