Russian agricultural holding Lazarevskoye has launched a demo version of the Pigs Scale service for contactless weighing of pigs, a company representative told RB.RU about this.

Computer or machine vision is provided by two types of video cameras: measurement and observation. Processing of the received primary information is carried out by artificial intelligence modules.

The program builds graphs of weight gain, as well as the age structure of cattle at the beginning of fattening and at the end of the period. The error in body weight data does not exceed 2.8%.

Taking the example of a herd of 55 thousand heads, using the service will allow saving more than 50 million rubles a year. According to the developer, the technology is suitable for farms with a population of 1,000 animals. The company invested 35 million rubles in the development of the service.

“Within a 10-year horizon, we plan to provide a net present value of the project of 125 million rubles, the internal rate of return will be 37%,” said Kristina Romanovskaya, director of the Lazarevskoye agricultural holding.

By 2025, the technology of agricultural exploitation should be ready to be replicated in Russia and the BRICS countries.
