Chicken Farm Automation
There is a vast of increasingly tech savvy monitoring techniques in the modern broiler farm, like our Automated Visual Recognition!
We can create ground truth in real time with auto annotation, enabling us to see and read what each individual bird and the flock is telling us.
Using cameras enables us to see a variety of bird behaviours and this also helps us in monitoring things such as feed or water consumption, bird spread or shed temperature, humidity or airflow. It could also analyse feeder and drinker usage throughout the shed.
They all look at the bigger picture and give us some great insights but with these new advancements using ‘off the shelf’ cameras we get an insight like never before into poultry behaviour and activity.
With this new advancement we are able to distinguish individual birds’ behaviours, plus other welfare indicators which we at OPTIfarm use to provide our welfare assessments.
We asses animal welfare on the principles of the globally recognised Five Freedoms.
Clients at OPTIfarm we will soon be able to receive this new service along with other new innovations we are working on as part of our already successful 24/7 global farm optimisation.
How does image analysis this help you?
- Improved feed conversion
- Improved predictability of performance
- Gives livestock the best possible conditions
- Improves bird health and welfare
- Improves flock uniformity
- Pinpoint disparity from a range of management factors including temperature and ventilation.
Assessing multiple types of information for farm performance evaluation can be difficult, data plays a huge part in the modern broiler and having the back up of our globally successful real time optimisation service means you can be more hands-on. Saving time and adding value.
