As more technology is integrated into livestock production, and farming in general, lots of data is generated. There are two main categories of data: sensor data and farmer recorded data. Learn how sensor data, such as that generated by cameras, can be utilized to make better management decisions. See how farmer recorded data can be integrated with other external data sets to create a predictive models to try to improve swine production systems. Guilhereme Rosa is a professor of precision livestock production and breeding at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
