Better monitoring across locations for optimized animal growth cycles, yield and quality.
Livestock growers and buyers must contend with inconsistent animal sizes and uncertain growth cycles influenced by a variety of health factors, including stress, activity, disease, feed formula and environment. Our livestock monitoring solution, powered by Microsoft Azure, helps large-scale livestock growers and buyers (e.g., retail food chains) proactively optimize the animal growth cycle, yield and quality with improved health monitoring across all locations.
How SAS® Enables Livestock Monitoring
Powered by SAS Analytics for IoT and Azure IoT, our solution combines easy-to-deploy sensors and cloud-based predictive analytics to effectively monitor livestock.
Easy-to-deploy monitoring paired with AI
While traditional solutions involve labor-intensive RFID tagging and manual inspections, our solution uses easy-to-deploy cameras paired with artificial intelligence to monitor the growth, physical movement and characteristics, and digestive output of the livestock.
The information gleaned from monitoring is combined with data from integrated temperature, humidity, CO and ammonia sensors to analyze the livestock and its environment, and alert growers of possible health issues or contagious diseases before they affect an entire flock, herd or pen.
Our livestock monitoring solution not only helps keep animals and people healthy but also helps growers optimize the feed formula and determine when the animals reach their target maturity and size.
Improvement of animal well-being and optimization of the production processes are high on the agenda for farmers and the food industry. Using SAS Analytics for IoT and the Azure IoT platform, we can deliver enterprise-grade solutions that help farmers resolve operational challenges, improve animal well-being and create the basis for a transparent food supply chain.
