Abstract: Farms increasingly use and depend on information technology. However, agriculture is not well prepared in terms of risk assessment: risk analysis and risk evaluation does not reach the standards as common in other industries and SME. The paper structures the implementation of risk assessment in factory farming and defines work areas and levels. IT is considered as an important interface between farms and CI. The significance of IT in factory farming of heavy livestock in Switzerland is assessed. The paper encompasses the usage of IT infrastructures, herd management by RFID and track and tracing systems. The role of reporting centres and emergency preparedness are shortly discussed. Risk figures (on-site and in terms of critical infrastructures) are roughly estimated and evaluated.
