Dr Cheryl McCarthy: Benefits of monitoring chicken welfare using machine vision


The project involves using camera
technology to monitor bird behaviours in a shed environment and using that as an
early indicator for animal welfare conditions. In five years time I would
like to think that there are cameras installed in commercial sheds that are
doing this continuous monitoring and reporting to the farmers. In conjunction
with the weight monitoring, feed conversion ratio they can get this camera
monitoring happening as well, as well as the inspections being done by private
vets.
