Abstract

Agriculture is still the main source of NH3 emissions. Consequently, ammonia reduction and monitoring are included in the strict EU targets. Unfortunately, the main issue with the quantification of NH3 emissions is that some uncertainties are still related to NH3 volatilization measurements, mainly ...

Abstract

As increasing number of studies for body measurement purposes in both the animal breeding and production stages, several papers have already evaluated the feasibility of consumer depth sensors for linear body measurement of livestock including pigs and cows. However, taking heart girth measurements ...

Abstract

The behaviour of animals provides information on their health, welfare and environmental situation. In different climatic conditions, pigs adopt different lying postures; at higher temperatures they lie laterally on their side with their limbs extended, while in lower temperatures they will adopt a ...

Abstract

Bovine respiratory disease (BRD) remains the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in feedlot cattle. At feedlot arrival, classification of cattle groups into high- or low-risk based on their expected level of BRD is common, highly variable, and based on many subjective criteria. An accurate...

Abstract

New equipment applications for the monitoring and measuring of pig growth play an important role in quality management and productivity improvement. One challenge that researchers face is how to obtain the body components of animals in large-scale farms automatically, which are significant to their ...

Abstract

The behaviors of chicken can reflect its health condition. However, the existing behaviors information acquisition directly depending on human observation is tedious, laborious and inaccurate. This paper aims to present an automatic behaviors information monitoring method for caged chicken using...

Abstract

Currently hot carcass weight (HCW) and fat score jointly indicate the price grid for sheep meat in Australia. However, experts in the field believe that soon, yield and quality traits such as intramuscular fat (IMF), greville rule fat depth (GRFAT), computed tomography lean meat yield (CTLEAN), and ...

Abstract

The objective of this study was to evaluate through the infrared thermography the surface temperature of the lacrimal caruncle (ocular), auricular pavilion and nose area of weaned piglets in relation to different types of environmental enrichment (EE). A total of 64 weaned piglets were monitored....
