Automated counting

  • Why is it worth it for me to start counting automatically?
    Everyday rehousing processes take place in each farm in the world, resulting often in counting errors and animals not being correctly reported.
    Since our human capabilities are limited, counting animals manually is not at all the best approach. Our systems allow this process to be digitalized, achieving more accuracy in the counts, less cost and simplified work: the workload of employees is reduced, giving them the chance to focus on key responsibilities.
  • How does automated count actually work?

    Our Pig-Counter is based on artificial intelligence and works together with overhead cameras to recognize pigs of all sizes and count them once they cross the area of the camera. Counting and rehousing processes are simplified and stress-free thanks to digitalization.

  • Will I save money if I start counting my pigs automatically?

    Yes. Especially when selling and buying animals it occurs very often that one finds gaps in the reporting documents. Very often the numbers of animals received are not correct, which results sometimes in important losses for companies and farms.

  • Can I count lambs or other animals apart from pigs?

    Not yet. For the time being, our counter is able to only recognise swine (of any size, shape and colour). However, we will keep working on improving and continue to develop our systems to perhaps in a near future be able to count different types of livestock.

  • Am I able to see the counts in real time?

    Yes. Our software allows for a real time monitoring, either with or without video preview. The results are of course also available for review once the counting process is done, anytime and in any device. An automatic report of the results is also possible.

Our Pig-Counter

  • How do I install the system?

    Our systems and software are made to be completely user-friendly, especially our Pig-Counter M, which is a PnP device. Our Pig-Counter S is a fixed system, which may require some more technical knowledge to be fully implemented in your facilities. Nevertheless, the systems include detailed user and installation guides and our team is always there to support you in case questions or problems should arise.

  • How many cameras can the system interact with at the same time?

    Our mobile systems are limited and optimized to work together with one camera at a time, being able to be transported from one stable to another for different recounts. The Pig-Counter S allows for simultaneous recording and counting through different network cameras in separate corridors as long as real live monitoring with video is not required.

  • Can it be used at slaughterhouses?

    Yes. If you are interested on counting in slaughterhouses or your company has greater requirements, the Pig-Counter S is your best bet. Contact us now to get a personalized offer for our services and a pilot test.

  • Can I use the system outside?

    The system could be used outside. However, this may affect the accuracy depending on the lighting conditions (e.g. too much sunlight, shadows). Therefore, it is recommended by us to carry out the counting processes indoors, where lighting is usually the same and the camera can always operate properly (i.e. hall, entrances, exits, loading and unloading bays with a roof).

  • How do the cameras behave on harsh conditions?

    We use IP67 cameras which are water resistant and also work properly in humid conditions. The lenses are protected from dirt, it is however recommended to clean the protective glass frequently enough to make sure the image is always of adequate quality.

  • How much does it cost?

    The hardware for our systems is paid once and for the Pig-Counter S it will always depend on the prices set by our suppliers. Our service fees come from our software licenses, which vary depending on the type of system and requirements of your company. Fees for the mobile version can be found in our online shop.

  • Where can I order one?

    Our mobile system will soon be available for purchase in our online shop. If you are a big pig-producer or slaughterhouse and want a more powerful option, you can contact us and we will prepare a special quotation for you adapted to your needs.
