Big Data from a Precision Poultry Feeding System: Insights and Exploration
We have developed RFID-equipped systems to control feed intake and monitor various aspects of poultry feeding and laying behaviour. In this webinar I will share some of the stories our birds have shared with us, in a style that ranges from colloquial to mathematical.
University of Alberta
Martin Zuidhof has been studying broiler breeders for over 30 years. Over the last decade, his team developed and patented precision feeding technology to feed every bird the right amount of the right feed at the right time. In addition to its commercial potential, the system doubles as one of the best poultry research data acquisition tools in the world. Dr. Zuidhof‘s goal is to revolutionize the way the world feeds (and studies) broiler breeders.
Dr. Zuidhof is academic leader of the Poultry Innovation Partnership (PIP), a unique collaboration between the University, Government, and the poultry industry. The PIP is committed to relevance and excellence in research, teaching and learning, and extension, and it plays an important role training the next generation of leaders in the poultry industry.
