It’s true: the industry that puts your chicken on the table is producing more food with more precision and safety than ever before. And even with U.S. broiler production increasing 21% from 2010 to 2020, our industry charted noteworthy improvements in efficiency and sustainability.
So, what’s our secret? For one thing, our technology is getting smarter—connected devices are improving modern farming and revolutionizing the way we do business. For poultry in particular, technological solutions and the Internet of Things (IoT) have vastly improved operational efficiency, which is good not only for farmers and companies, but also for the planet and for consumer safety, too.

AI (Artificial Intelligence) Ventilation Sensors
If a little is unavoidable, and a lot is trouble, how can farmers effectively monitor the levels of gas in their enclosures to ensure safety? The answer lies in artificial intelligence. By automating ventilation systems with AI environmental sensors, farmers can precisely regulate their production environment and protect their birds against dangerous levels of gas, not to mention undesirable temperature and humidity levels.
Many AI solutions simply require plugging inputs into a system, and from there, the system learns on its own. This is a great way to streamline one of the more onerous maintenance tasks required in poultry farming.
From the farm to the table, modern technology is powering the evolution of the chicken industry. “Smart farming” is the way of the future, and as progress continues apace, we will continue to adapt in the direction of better, safer, more sustainable production. We’re ready for the future, and the future is hungry for chicken.
