Launching the Ro-Main smaRt suite!

How do you imagine the agriculture of tomorrow? Labor shortage, productivity, animal welfare, environment... enormous challenges await pig producers in the coming years. Ro-Main, a 20-year old company located near Quebec city (Canada), decided to support farmers by developing a new range of products incorporating artificial intelligence to meet the requirements of the future.

Driven by our desire to create a synergy between animals, humans and their environment, we are proud to launch 3 software modules for pigs and 2 for sows*. By means of a network of cameras adapted for pig farms, deep learning algorithms analyze the video streams and translate them into individual behavioral metrics. The analysis of these metrics provides a better understanding of each animal's specific needs, automates certain tasks and ensures better decision-making. 


Since the launch of PigWatch in 2009, we have always combined artificial intelligence and pig farming: 

The combination of technology and animal science deserves to be exploited to better manage our farms. We believe that the Ro-Main smaRt suite will simplify the life of producers by allowing them to continuously, in a non-invasive way, analyze the behavior of their herd!  

 - Jacquelin Labrecque, R & D Director. 


Description and benefits of the modules:  


3 modules for pigs *: 

- Counting errors can cause problems and stress for the farm manager. With smaRt Counting, it's a thing of the past! The software automatically counts pigs in any given corridor.  

- The smaRt Inventory module takes real-time inventory by pen.  

- Exclusivity: the smaRt Tracking module tracks and analyzes each animal's behavior 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This module is an essential tool for the analysis of individual behavior by veterinarians, researchers and other professionals.  

2 modules for sows *: 

- The smaRt Breeding module that determines the optimal moment to inseminate; thus resulting in an accurate single-dose insemination. 

- The smaRt Health module uses the behavior of sows to detect health problems early. 


* All modules are independent and work with the Ro-Main smaRt Cam network of cameras. Patent Pending. 


Official presentation of the Ro-Main smaRt suite at EuroTier from 13 November to 19 November 2018.  

Sales starting February 2019. Pre-orders start on December 10th.
