ARM Buildings and Farmex From Turkey, Oz Alp – as he is known – is studying for a degree in mathematics with physics and replaces Olivia Hartshorn, who has returned to Harper Adams to complete her studies.

Funded by ARM and Farmex, his duties will involve sophisticated analysis of the mass of data produced by monitoring piggeries under Barn Report Pro. This will enable findings to be applied on farm and also for comparisons to be made between houses and systems, which may have design implications for future buildings.

Oz has already visited farms with Tim Miller, ARM’s environment specialist, and says he can see how objective historical data will help decision-making.

“With all the things going on around a pig farm, it is hard to tell if your sites are performing better or worse. I am delighted on how well-formed the work here has been with the application of some very cutting-edge mathematical techniques,” said Oz.

Data loggers are fitted as standard to all ARM pig buildings, enabling pig farmers to link up with Farmex’s Barn Report Pro information retrieval system. In addition to environmental information, ARM has also been installing electricity and water meters and feed sensors, enabling very detailed information to be retrieved, seen as a significant move towards genuinely smart pig farming.
