Touch the Soil News #928 (Feature photo – A Large Feedlot of Holstein Cattle)
In a recent press release from Cargill (world’s largest agricultural company) the company announced a partnership with Cainthus. Cainthus leverages imaging technology that will allow dairy farmers to individually recognize their cows. In several seconds, the technology can memorize a cow’s unique identity and record individual patterns and movements.
This technology will allow dairy farmers to track a cow’s consumption of water and feed, to key activities that foretell health and other issues.
While facial recognition of cows is new, it leverages off the much larger movement for human facial recognition that is underway. What do you think?
