The cough monitor for pigs uses sound analysis and registers coughing behaviour in pig sections. This innovative product enables the health status of your pigs to be observed automatically and continually.
The cough monitor reduces antibiotic use in pigs
The cough monitor consists of a computer with special sound analysis function and two microphones that hang in the section. The computer filters the coughing noises made by the pigs from other sounds and warns if the coughing behaviour differs from acceptable levels. The cough monitor ensures that coughing behaviour is observed sooner and more accurately. This helps identify respiratory diseases in an early stage and can reduce, or even avoid, the use of antibiotics.
