Investigators

Start date
2017
End date
2018
Objective
The aim of PouLLS is to create an all–in–one environmental indicator and animal welfare monitoring sensory system, with wireless data transmitting, analytics, User Interface (UI), early warnings and recommended actions for intensive poultry production units (IPPUs). Implementation will augment existing legislative and industry assurance requirements, providing real–time monitoring and support to mitigate productivity losses associated with current error prone manual methods, increasing welfare levels and creating greater levels of assurance to the consumer through certification. This innovative product is in direct response to growing consumer concerns about animal welfare and consequent health and safety of meat products, which has resulted in increasing regulations affecting IPPU livestock rearing conditions. Producers will be able to balance meeting regulations with increasing production demands.
