EveryPig has announced its easy-to-use web-based platform now features real-time connectivity with AP (Automated Production) EDGE Barn Controller units, an industry-leading barn automation system. The new AP-EDGE integration will automatically communicate water consumption and temperature data to EveryPig.
The company says the cutting-edge functionality will help caregivers who use the internet-enabled controllers to streamline their daily checkup process and save time since their barn data will be automatically entered into EveryPig’s system. Water consumption fluctuation is often an early indication of a pig health problem. Having this information integrated into their EveryPig account, will enable field managers, veterinarians, and pig owners to identify pig health problems faster or even before pigs show signs of a problem.
“The new AP-EDGE connectivity is another milestone in EveryPig’s mission to improve animal health,” says EveryPig founder Chris Bomgaars. “The water consumption and temperature data points received from barn controllers will help veterinarians, field managers and caregivers to spot health issues quicker. The connection will also speed up the learning process of our algorithms, enabling EveryPig to offer quicker AI-assisted responses when pigs start to get sick. We look forward to working with more innovative companies like AP that understand that user needs come first, and there is plenty of room for more collaboration in the industry.”
EveryPig also extends a special thanks to Blake Berg, a forward-thinking Iowa farmer who was the first to ask for and implement the integration.
“It’s exciting to be helping with new technology to better track information and to help with daily pig health,” Berg says.
Earlier this year, the software company introduced an all-new antibiotic tracking and analytics functionality aimed at decreasing unnecessary antibiotic use that allows pork producers to track their system-wide antibiotics usage and compare it over time.
