Measuring Respiratory Challenge
Integrating data from other systems into Barn Report Pro is a vital part of the ongoing development of real-time remote monitoring of pig production sites. Farmers are looking for data systems that can provide access to all the available information from a pig unit using a single log in or common reporting tools. The Belgian technology company SoundTalks have a system that records and analyses coughing in growing pigs. From this data a continuous indication of respiratory challenge can be provided which helps farmers make an early intervention thus preventing any clinical disease outbreak. With increasing pressure on prime producers to reduce the use of antibiotics this kind of technology is likely to become more prevalent. Barn Report Pro offers the flexibility to incorporate such data sources within its routine weekly reporting.
