The research behind OPTICFLOCK
All the research and development for OPTICFLOCK has been carried out on commercial farms and in collaboration with producers with the aim of finding out what would be most useful for farmers. The results are therefore directly relevant to today’s farming.


The first evidence that optical flow gives useful information about chicken welfare
🔵

Confirmation that optical flow can reveal chicken welfare
🔵

Optical flow can predict hock burn in birds as young as four days old
🔵

Optical flow and behaviour 🔵

Optical flow can indicate which flocks test positive for
Campylobacter 🔵

Optical flow is more powerful than water use as a predictor of hock burn and footpad dermatitis 🔵

The connections between welfare and efficient farming 🔵
