Big Data for Decision Making in the Poultry Industry

Big Data for Decision Making in the Poultry Industry
Key points:

Data is an underappreciated asset and poultry companies do not extract full value from it

Poultry companies rely on professionals to make decisions – geneticists, veterinarians, and nutritionists, for example – and they should utilize data scientists in the same way

Using big data allows poultry companies to make better decisions at every opportunity, from small daily tasks to large infrastructure commitments

Big data and statistical analytics enable poultry companies to identify problems and opportunities more quickly and accurately

Big data and machine learning can predict future outcomes with enough time to act or correct
