Time to tame technology

Technology is fine – but it needs to be interpreted. That is the view of Tim Miller after being almost overwhelmed by the amount of data being produced by companies servicing the pig industry throughout Europe.

“At EuroTier, there was much evidence of monitoring of feed, the environment, water and services, but in my experience, pig farmers need professional help in interpreting the massive amount of data generated so that sensible management decisions can be made,” he said. “If data is left and not used, then there is no point in collecting it in the first place.”

“I think Britain has a lead in this area – but the gap is closing on the welfare front,” he added.

Tim said he saw much evidence of welfare-friendly equipment and buildings – including some using straw – where Britain has traditionally seen itself as a leader and used it as a marketing tool.

“I feel this is something the UK industry should keep an eye on,” he said.
