Harnessing Technology in Poultry Production

Artificial intelligence can imitate what the human mind does. It impersonates cognitive functions with learning and problem-solving. This feature can be used to monitor feed, make production and processing developments, and make the industry safer and faster.

FREMONT, CA: Technology has the aptitude to change the way poultry, egg, and feed producers do business over the coming years. Poultry farming must respond. Farmers should farm data, not just chickens, and in doing so, harness digital technologies and information to enhance productiveness. Below are a few ways technology is impacting poultry production

3D Printing

One example of 3D printing in the poultry industry today is the capability to print parts for equipment. This is particularly helpful in production areas where components are difficult to obtain. Instead of waiting for parts to be ordered from far, those parts can be printed in real-time on-site. Moreover, 3D printing can be adopted to minimize production losses and even print meat.

Robots

There are a number of robots arriving in the poultry marketplace. However, most of them are comparatively expensive. Robots can be employed to increase production, clean floors, collect eggs, decrease worker injuries, and address labor shortages by doing work in processing plants that humans do not wish to do.

Drones

While not a choice for chickens, as the machines tend to scare the birds, they can be utilized to monitor the flock and the surrounding in real-time.

Sensors

Sensors are starting to be used in poultry and are environmentally focused. They are much focused on bird welfare. Therefore, researchers are keen on bringing in technology that can evaluate the welfare and the experience of chickens.

Artificial Intelligence

Artificial intelligence can imitate what the human mind does. It impersonates cognitive functions with learning and problem-solving. This feature can be used to monitor feed, make production and processing developments, and make the industry safer and faster.

Augmented Reality (AR)

AR can see things, like bacteria, that a human eye cannot. It can also be adopted to rate eggs in egg processing plants. With AR, one can make what they see smarter and better.

Virtual Reality

This technology can be implemented to create a visual representation of a flock, facilitate farmers to check their flocks remotely, and send information back to a computer program. It can also be utilized in veterinary education, for instance, as a teaching tool, making farm visits redundant.

Blockchain

Blockchain in poultry can prove to be important in creating transparency and tracking for the food system.
