Project Title

Animal welfare early warning and controlling in broiler breeding

Project description

In recent decades, production on farms has been considerably expanded. Due to the specialisation of individual farm branches, livestock numbers have increased significantly. Especially in broiler breeding it is no longer possible for the farmer to observe individual animals. In view of increasing expectations, especially in livestock farming, automated monitoring systems have an enormous potential. In the project "AniWeb" an indicator-based early warning system is being developed which can detect the behaviour of animals even in large herds and which triggers an "alarm" in case of conspicuous behaviour. The continuous observation of the animals not only supports the farmer in recognizing different behavioral patterns, but also gives him the possibility to initiate countermeasures at an early stage. One component of the project is to test the potential of neural networks and artificial intelligence with regard to their application in livestock housing. To what extent can these technologies support or even replace the eyes and ears of a farmer.
