Over the last few decades, Poultry and meat processing methods and technology have constantly had to develop and evolve to meet the demands of the market. To fuel this growth the poultry and meat industry will need to embrace the most innovative and creative avenues to reach the next level of productivity and efficiency. Understanding and harnessing tomorrow’s technology will bring in real benefits in production, profitability, and animal welfare along with the much needed competitive edge. All of which are important to forward-thinking businesses.
While robotics and automation in the meat industry is getting smarter every passing day, the companies are also leveraging technologies like augmented reality (AR). This technology also has many uses in poultry and meat processing and is by far the easiest and cheapest to implement, requiring no special training and a smaller amount of new equipment to be installed. AR can also be utilized by the consumer to receive detailed information about the source and processes which their food has been through. With transparency becoming more and more imperative in all parts of the industry, the advantages of ground breaking AR accomplishments should not be neglected in poultry farming. Besides, virtual reality (VR) immerses users in a completely new and control environment. This involves serval uses for the poultry industry, the first being training. VR can be employed to train line works how to trim meat, walk through a house without troubling the birds, or even how to check the animals. Another use lies with the consumer. Offering users with a virtual tour of a line or facility will give an unparalleled level of transparency. Apart from this, implementing a supply chain-wide big data program will provide more useful information. Similarly, this information can then be used to increase the efficiency of the industry as well.
