A hybrid WSN system for environment monitoring at poultry buildings

  title={A hybrid WSN system for environment monitoring at poultry buildings},
  author={Haixia Qi and Hong Zhou and Tobias Low and Saman Abdanan Mehdizadeh and M. Tscharke and Thomas Banhazi},
The environmental quality inside a livestock building is very important for the welfare of the animals and stockmen. Environmental quality is normally assessed by measuring air temperature, relative humidity, and airborne dust concentration. With the advance of wireless communications technologies, it is possible to automatically monitor and control the environmental variables continuously inside a livestock building with low cost and without much human intervention. This paper introduces a…

Exposure of Workers to Airborne Microorganisms in Open-Air Swine Houses

Irregular and infrequent cleaning, high pig density, no separation of wastes from pen floors, and accumulation of water as a result of the processes for cleaning and reducing pig temperature possibly compromise the benefits of the open characteristic of the finishing units with respect to airborne bacterial concentration.
