Serket-Tech is an artificial intelligence, first developed in the Netherlands, to allow farmers to monitor and trace their livestock individually and automatically.
The design won the International Award at this year’s 2018 Enterprise Ireland Innovation Arena Awards at the National Ploughing Championships 2018! But what does it do and how does it work?
The design -
To put it simply, the software tool from Serket-Tech is a way for farmers to both track and monitor their livestock. It was originally designed for use within the pork industry but could also be used with other stock.
Using “readily-available” technology, the software tool provides a 24/7 live stream of any livestock, a stream than can be accessed all over the globe. The system also allows for farmers to monitor the health and performance of their stock on a continual basis.
The system can analyze and detect even the smallest change in an animal’s behaviour patterns and can even notify a farmer once a problem arises. The system from Serket-Tech will not only tell you of the problem but also provide you with some advice on how to solve it!
The system conveniently stores all of the historical data of each animal and the whole farm in the one place, making it easier to carry out history checks.
Not only does the system from Serket-Tech save farmers hours in manual labour, but it also helps reduce the mortality rate of a herd, whilst also reducing the use of antibiotics and ensuring animals are bed fed at an efficient rate.
In fact, the system helps maximize the overall efficiency of the farm, whilst increasing animal welfare standards to a new high!
