Big Data Analytics Powering Progress in Animal Agriculture

There has been significant progress in technologies that can be utilized in the livestock industry. These technologies will help farmers, breeders associations and other industry stakeholders in continuously monitoring and collecting animal-level and farm-level data using less labor-intensive approaches.

Specifically, we are seeing the use of fully automated data recording based on digital images, sounds, sensors, unmanned systems and real-time uninterrupted computer vision. These technologies can help farmers tremendously and have the potential to enhance product quality, well-being, management practice, sustainable development and animal health, and ultimately contribute to better human health. These technologies, when implemented with rich molecular information such as transcriptomics, genomics, and microbiota from animals, can help achieve the long-lasting dream of implementing precision animal agriculture.
