SoundTalks was present at the Intensive Livestock Farming Days from 1 to 3 March, which took place in Venray, the Netherlands. SoundTalks met a lot of interesting people and business partners during this three day during fair.

We were very pleased to find out that more and more people are genuinely interested in our SOMO Respiratory Distress Monitor. SoundTalks is doing its upmost to deliver high-quality SOMO devices. The appreciation we received for our products is a confirmation for us to keep delivering quality and innovative products to the pig industry.

Quote: "SoundTalks provides algorithms for monitoring livestock’s health status using sound. It’s delivered as a plug and play package containing a portable shock and waterproof hardware platform to process audio in real-time, and distress monitoring software and a SoundTalks microphone. The package allows the user to start overseeing herds’ respiratory health in less than 5 minutes."


Recent trials have made it very clear what computer monitoring can achieve. An early warning system consisting of a microphone and algorithms can detect respiratory issues several days earlier than a producer or vet can. Trials all over Europe can confirm this.


A chill pig is a delicious pig. The quality of pork can be improved by reducing the stress level of pigs. SoundTalks strives for a sustainable meat production with the SOMO respiratory distress monitor for pigs. The early detection of respiratory diseases drastically improves the life quality and health of the animals. The meat is not only more delicious, it is also healthier by eliminating the need of preventive use of antibiotics.
