It’s true: The industry that puts your chicken on the table produces more food with precision and safety than ever before. Even as broiler production in the United States increased by 21% from 2010 to 2020, our industry has identified remarkable improvements in efficiency and sustainability.
So what is our secret? For one thing, our technology is getting smarter – connected devices are improving modern agriculture and revolutionizing the way we do business. For poultry in particular, technology solutions and the Internet of Things (IoT) have greatly improved operational efficiency, which is good not only for farmers and businesses, but for the planet and consumer safety as well.

AI ventilation sensors
If too little is inevitable, and too much is a problem, how can farmers effectively monitor the levels of gas in their packages to ensure safety? The answer lies in artificial intelligence. By automating ventilation systems with AI-powered environmental sensors, farmers can precisely regulate their production environment and protect their birds from dangerous levels of gas, not to mention unwanted heat and humidity levels.
Many AI solutions simply require you to plug in inputs into the system, and from there, the system learns on its own. This is a great way to simplify one of the more difficult maintenance tasks required in raising poultry.
From farm to table, modern technology supports the development of the chicken industry. “Smart Agriculture” is the way of the future, and as we continue to progress at a steady pace, we will continue to adapt in the direction of better, safer and more sustainable production. We are ready for the future, and the future is hungry for chickens.
