The first-ever Poultry Tech Summit brought together tech innovators, venture capitalists and poultry companies from 20 countries to triangulate on the next generation of technology that will solve problems and open new opportunities in poultry production.
Technologies are becoming available to leverage blockchain and machine-learning technologies to detect, predict and manage outcomes in poultry health, production efficiency, product quality and food safety throughout the supply chain.
Next-generation sequencing food safety technology that promises to deliver unprecedented insight into supply chains at a rate and scale never experienced before is poised for commercial launch in poultry processing.
Robotic technologies to be presented at the Poultry Tech Summit give a glimpse into the next revolution in poultry farming — automation that tirelessly interacts with flocks, pinpoints localized problems in the house and reports everything on the cloud.
The syndrome known as woody breast and white striping in broiler chickens has emerged in recent years as a worldwide problem for which the exact causes are unknown but extensive scientific research is now yielding clues about how to reduce its incidence and severity.
