How vision systems help deliver the Christmas turkey
The principle role of the hatchery is to identify the fertilised eggs and incubate them to hatching; yet identifying which eggs are are viable is a hugely skilled task and requires exceptional levels of concentration.
Christmas is on it’s way and the traditional turkeys, geese, chicken and ducks are being farmed to meet the demand. And this is a process that, for the turkey at least, begins in August or September at the hatchery.
And the adoption of the technology is proving phenomenal, with a rapidly growing number of hatcheries using it; not just to meet the Christmas demand but to also to meet the constant demand for other birds, notably the 50 billion chickens reared globally for food each year
