Animal health monitoring on farms

Home » Animal health monitoring on farms

Monitoring and maintaining appropriate climatic conditions like temperature, humidity, ventilation and other environmental parameters such as gas concentration, particulate matter or noise intensity is essential to comply with biosecurity regulations in livestock farms and to promote animal protection and wellbeing.

Measures to control air pollution like sensors for livestock farming are part of biosecurity plans to reduce the introduction or spread of respiratory diseases in the various livestock sectors (pigs, poultry, cattle, etc.) and are particularly useful in intensive farming.

Workers and Animal health and wellbeing monitoring

Thermal comfort

Thermal comfort

Temperature and humidity conditions have a significant impact on animal welfare and can even reduce performance and productivity due to heat stress. Knowing these parameters also allows you to adjust ventilation systems to optimise energy consumption.

Noise level

Noise level

Excessive and constant noise on livestock farms can cause stress to animals, negatively affecting feeding, reproductive behaviour and rest, as well as impacting on the health and safety of workers and people living in the local are.

Airborne dust

Airborne dust

In addition to illnesses caused by respiratory tract irritation such as coughing or breathing difficulties caused by inhaling particulate matter, dust and particulate matter carry pathogens and contribute to the spread of disease among animals and humans.

Gas concentration

Gas concentration

Intensive farming odour emissions, such as nitrogen oxides (NOx), carbon dioxide (CO2) and hydrogen sulphide (H2S), contribute to air pollution and deterioration of air quality, affecting animal and human health and the environment.

On-farm monitoring platform

We offer a complete solution based on a network of sensors installed at key locations on the farm that collect relevant real-time data on temperature, humidity, noise, concentrations of pollutant gases, dust and other particulate matter, which are instantly transmitted to the data visualisation platform.

Smart farming platform

This platform also has a fully configurable alert system that allows the farmer to be alerted to an abnormal or risky situation as it occurs and through various channels (email, SMS, instant messaging service, etc.).

Data visualisation and analysis

The data is presented graphically and visually to facilitate access to relevant information and to aid decision making in the management of the plant:

Emission control on livestock farms

The use of IoT sensors for monitoring on livestock farms not only has the benefit of protecting animal welfare, but also helps to control intensive farming odour emissions and greenhouse gases (like the odour control in a poultry farm, for instantce).

By monitoring greenhouse gas and particulate emissions, ventilation systems can be optimised and effective manure and slurry management can be controlled.

Trend Analysis

The management platform and software allows trends in concentrations of gases, particulates, moisture and other environmental parameters to be analysed and correlated with animal health issues or the operational efficiency of the facility, enabling informed decisions to be made.
