Artificial Intelligence (AI) has offered multifold utilities for several industries. According to expert researches, the poultry industry is to witness a major metamorphosis in its operations.
Fremont, CA: The poultry industry generates and handles a large amount of data. Analyzing such data is longwinded without the intervention of AI. To shrink these problems, the industries are looking forward to implementing machine learning robotics, big data, and data analytics in their farm practices. Let's take a look at how AI can bring in changes.
Farm management activities
These algorithms can effectively collect data on the farm management parameters like humidity, temperature, and related factors, store them on cloud platforms, process them, and deliver the desired output using Data analytics. For example, robots can be employed to collect temperature and ammonia related data from the farm and process them accordingly to make decisions on ventilation without human interference. Such technologies are hopeful towards redesigning farm management operations.
The health of the poultry animals is of a prime focus. The AI-enabled diagnosis could be simple as well as apt for disease management. They can experience several diseases whose symptoms are diverse. Big Data here can be helpful in rendering data related to behavioral changes in sick animals. Moreover, cannibalizing or other farm threats can be recorded in cameras, and alarm systems can be set up accordingly. Veterinary consultation can also be mobilized, making diagnosis faster and better.
Generally, research is expensive, but AI can significantly curtail the cost and efforts for the trials. It eases the identification of breed characteristics, thereby helping in genetics study. It can also accelerate feed formulation analysis. As AI is a good potential for speedy and accurate trials, it is a good consideration for flourishing one's poultry business.
Post farm practices
Isn't the identification of good quality eggs by an automated process way more convenient than by manual effort? This is what AI has done in the poultry industry. Developed countries have already incorporated AI into post farm activities. Global giant Tyson uses computer vision system which enables tracking of chicken through their production lines. Today, the demand for protein has increased globally, and to meet these targets, poultry companies are keen on adopting AI technologies that can provide chicken and eggs at a lower cost.
With the rising sophistication of AI, its benefits will reach out to the related fields of the poultry industry like Vaccine or medicine manufacturing and nutrition companies. Whatever be the geographical locations, the farms can now integrate and analyze data from multiple sources and improve their production system. The industries are, therefore, upbeat about their capability to supply chicken and eggs at affordable rates across the globe.
