New issue of Poultry Digital Magazine: Internet of poultry

How IoT technology will shape the future of the industry.

12 April 2019, at 9:50am

IPPE broke records in 2019 with over 36,000 visitors attending the year's biggest poultry event. Even with the new addition of a third hall, the more than 1,100 exhibitors were full every day of the show.

We had boots on the ground this year and visited as many stands as possible to understand how industry leaders are optimising poultry and egg production in the digital age. We learned especially that data and technology are not only already playing a key role in this process but can offer a great deal more as big data and artificial intelligence technologies continue to mature.

In this issue of Poultry Digital Magazine, we feature some of the industry’s up and coming poultry tech leaders. Meet Intelia, who is working to deliver sensors, data solutions and artificial intelligence technologies to the farmer. We also speak with CEO of LivEgg Alon Blum whose company is optimising hatch yields by using data analytics and machine learning to improve chick quality and quantity.

Our country focus column makes a return in this issue with a look at India and a government incentive which seeks to empower women in rural communities by setting them up with chickens and the equipment to raise them in an effort to help them overcome poverty.

Also featured is our interview with Octopus Robots CEO Olivier Somville, who shares his insight into poultry technology and why he feels this industry in particular is so receptive to innovations and new tech.

Finally, meet Llyr Jones, a Welsh farmer who farms eggs as well as the sun for heat and power. He hosted us at his farm to show us how effective and worthwhile it can be to incorporate renewable tech into free-range production.
