Evonik is promoting its holistic approach to livestock management at this year’s VIV Asia in Bangkok, Thailand, from 13 to 15 March.

Johann Fickler, Animal Nutrition’s Vice President Know-how, Services & Digitalization, explains: “Managing livestock is getting more complex and traditional approaches are no longer sufficient. Technological developments now allow producers to use sensors and software to help them better understand the condition of their flocks, helping increase the performance or improve uniformity.

Optimizing hatchery performance requires good data management. Data can be stored in various ways, ranging from simple Excel sheets to sophisticated data management software. It is also not uncommon for a large part of the hatchery’s data to still only be on paper. That's a pity, because this data is much more valuable for data analysis when it is digitally stored in the right way.
