Finding New Technologies in the Pork Industry

Posted in: Pork Insight Articles, Prairie Swine Centre by admin on February 20, 2018

The term “Precision Farming” is used, especially in arable agriculture, to describe the collection of data in the field and the judicious use of expensive inputs to improve net income, reduce waste and impact on environment (sustainability), and speed (even automate some) decisions. From my perspective what will determine the success of any of these ideas will be their ability to use them in a barn environment (must be robust), and they must address a fundamental business need of collecting, analyzing and acting on aspects of production that have economic value.

The use of new Precision Farming technology is so prolific within arable farming that there are companies and newsletters devoted to the subject. The Top 10 Technologies are discussed in one publication https://www.therobotreport.com/top-10-technologies-in-precision-agriculture/. A review of the article reveals that most of the topics are not easily translated into animal agriculture: GPS; Mobile Devices; Robotics; Irrigation; Internet of Things; Sensors; Variable seeding rates; Weather modeling; Nitrogen modeling; Standardization. Some however, are important and relevant, such as mobile devices, Internet of Things, and standardization as they are at the heart of how we will assess what we need and what will become available to us in pork production.
