Poultry farms are gradually becoming high-tech environments which utilize technologies such as sensors, smart poultry management systems, and artificial intelligence to increase production, improve bird welfare, and minimize environmental footprint. These technologies generate large amounts of data by collecting a variety of parameters from farm operations. The data collected by these tools can offer credible insight into improving farm management, enhancing precision feeding, and early detection of infectious disease. However, governance, protection, and analysis of this large volume of data impose many challenges. This talk will discuss the impact of emerging digital technologies in poultry farming and opportunities they provide in terms of enhancing production and farm management. It will also review technology and operational requirements that enhance adoption and trust in farm technologies and also address challenges such as interoperability, data security, and sustainability.
