It’s true: the industry that puts your chicken on the table is producing more food with more precision and safety than ever before. And even with US broiler production increasing 21% between 2010 and 2020, our industry has seen notable improvements in efficiency and sustainability.
So what’s our secret? On the one hand, our technology is getting smarter: Connected devices are improving modern agriculture and revolutionizing the way we do business. For poultry in particular, technology solutions and the Internet of Things (IoT) have dramatically improved operational efficiency, which is good not only for farmers and businesses, but also for the planet and consumer safety. .

AI (artificial intelligence) ventilation sensors
With so little inevitable and so much trouble, how can farmers effectively monitor gas levels in their paddocks to ensure safety? The answer lies in artificial intelligence. By automating ventilation systems with AI environmental sensors, farmers can precisely regulate their production environment and protect their birds from dangerous levels of gases, not to mention unwanted temperature and humidity levels.
Many AI solutions simply require plugging inputs into a system, and from there, the system learns on its own. It’s a great way to streamline one of the most onerous maintenance tasks required in poultry farming.
From farm to table, modern technology is fueling the evolution of the chicken industry. “Smart farming” is the way of the future, and as progress continues, we will continue to adapt in the direction of better, safer and more sustainable production. We are ready for the future, and the future is hungry for chicken.
