FarmBits Podcast: NUtrack Animal Behavior Monitoring

In this week’s episode of FarmBits Podcast, Ty Schmidt, UNL associate professor of animal science and animal science graduate student Haley Beer join podcast hosts Jackson Stansell and Taylor Cross to discuss the NUtrack system, which was developed at the University of Nebraska. NUtrack uses artificial intelligence-linked camera sensors to monitor animal behavior and generate behavioral baselines customized to individual animals with the goal of detecting deviations that could help with early identification of disease.
