Using robotics to optimize broiler production
Every year 62.6 billion chickens are raised for meat consumption, and in that process, $6 billion is lost through inefficient and sub-optimal management of the farm environment. The industry faces three core challenges: reliability and availably of human labor; production cost; and animal welfare and biosecurity. Learn more about data-driven improvements in poultry production using artificial intelligence and robotics, resulting in more profitable, effective and safer working environments.
