Sensor Technology

Sensor technologies generally measure something about an animal or their environment. This information feeds into a system which analyses the data to provide information to the farmer or automatically perform corrective actions. Various sensors exist on the market to, for example:

  • Monitor temperature, relative humidity, carbon dioxide, ammonia, and other emission measurements in animal housing.
  • Automatically weigh and record growth measurements
  • Measure body temperature, heart rate and animal activity and location
