Cargill show cases new innovations including facial recognition at Eurotier 2018

Facial recognition technology is coming to the farm, and to Eurotier 2018, Hannover (November 13-15) where Cargill will demonstrate how Cainthus, the company in whom Cargill made an equity investment earlier in 2018, uses this predictive imaging to help dairy producers customize care for their animals.

“These new technologies can greatly enhance our customers’ ability to make proactive decisions to improve efficiency,” said Benoit Anquetil, strategic marketing & technology leader for Cargill’s European premix & nutrition business. “We are delighted to be at EuroTier with our team of experts and to help customers increase farm profitability and enhance animal health and wellbeing.”

Cargill will demonstrate further new innovations at Eurotier that empower producer productivity and animal health as they strive to meet customer and consumer preferences for well-cared-for livestock.

For ruminants, along with Cainthus Facial Recognition, theDairy Enteligen® system will be demonstrated. This platform puts data and knowledge into producers’ hands enabling them to make informed farm management decisions.

To help meet these requirements, Cargill will unveil two new nutritional solutions at EuroTier.LivaPig® is a piglet livability solution for sows, based on new technologies to boost performance during moderate to heavy exercise, such as the farrowing process.AndConverMax®, based on a unique blend of botanical extracts and high quality mineral sources, helping to improve feed conversion and secure welfare.

Cargill will also look at innovations aimed at enhancing holistic animal health on its stand at Eurotier, including feeds like the gut-health-boosting Intella® range for poultry and new digital nutrition software, such as CoreDiet™; an on-farm diet design program.
