Pig farm management

The demands for sustainable production in the competitive pig farming industry can only be met when the whole production chain from farm to fork becomes more efficient. To optimise the management of pig farms, data collection and analyzation is key. This use-case focusses on linking data across the value chain in order to provide the pig farmers with the necessary information to effectively implement and carry out their management activities.
