Predictive and Prescriptive Analytics for Chicken Farmers

MCC Room #202

11:00 am - 11:30 am

Today, many poultry farmers track their data using pen and paper. This information is collected weekly by a cooperative that often provides the baby chicks, feed, and technical support, and ultimately makes the live birds into food. With our app, Poultry Enteligen, farmers and cooperatives can now record data on a mobile app, which syncs with the Enteligen cloud platform. This platform then provides insights to all parties in real time. One type of insight we provide is: which farms should a poultry expert from the cooperative visit on a given day to maximize the impact that he or she can have on overall wellness and profitability? In what sequence should they visit them? The expert has a certain number of hours in a day, and must visit younger flocks before older flocks for biosecurity reasons, among other constraints such as required visits on certain days of a flock cycle. A second type of insight we provide is: on what day does the cooperative expect each of their flocks to reach the target harvest weight? We will teach you a little bit about poultry farming, and share with you about the insights we provide in our app.
