DIGITIZING THE HATCHERY PROCESS
Operational efficiency through real-time monitoring
Helping Egg Producers Replace Legacy Processes and Digitize Operations to Reduce Costs and Increase Profitability.
This large poultry farmer needed to ensure they had full visibility in every step of the poultry value chain. The breeding, hatchery, and broiler processes are very sensitive and have to maintain certain temperatures, humidity, and air quality conditions during the entire process.
A minor variation of even 1°C can put the entire production, operations, and most importantly, the eggs at risk. This also prevents the eggs from completing their 21-day incubation cycle during the hatchery process, also affecting animal welfare throughout the process. This means any deviation could have a
potential loss of 95,000 eggs in just one incubator and a productivity loss as the entire production cycle is then delayed.
The client also needs to comply with very strict government regulations which demand hourly reports of temperature and humidity. This paper-based control often fails due to changes in personnel, shift changes, and overall human errors.
A combination of easy-to-install gateways, sensors, and software that allow for full control of each egg-incubator, powered by the LoRaWAN network, guarantees robust connectivity in farms that are sometimes located in remote locations with scarce connectivity.
