The European Conference on Precision Livestock Farming (EC-PLF) takes place every 2 years. The 7th edition of EC-PLF will be held in Milan, Italy, from 15 to 18 September 2015. Precision livestock farming (PLF) is a livestock management technology that puts the living animal in the centre and equipment around the animal to measure it’s response. During the last (6th) edition of the EC-PLF conference it was demonstrated how PLF can support and improve techniques to make smart farming a reality, creating added value for many stakeholders: animals, farmers, veterinarians, feed and product...

Microphones, temperature sensors and relative humidity sensors are now available for the SOMO product line. Using these sensors is as easy as plugging them into a SOMO device. SOMO devices automatically recognise the sensors and start registering sensor values when they are available.

The SoundTalks microphone in combination with the respiratory distress monitoring software allows the measurement of respiratory health.

All our sensors are designed to withstand harsh farm conditions. All sensor elements are placed inside water repellent, dust tight, shockproof and chemical...

SoundTalks is proud to present its brand new SOMO product line. The SOMO product line includes two portable measurement platforms both focussed on high-quality audio and climate sensor data. Our many years of experience in on-farm measurement is translated into this brand new design. The outer shell protects the state of the art measurement computer from the harsh conditions on the farm. Packed with lots of processing power, the measurement computer enables real-time acoustic and environmental monitoring.

SOMO is intended for farmers and veterinarians who require future proof...

SoundTalks is proud to announce that its respiratory distress monitor for pigs is being demonstrated on the innovative platform "Living Tomorrow".

The bovine respiratory disease (BRD) complex impairs health and welfare in calves and causes severe economic losses for the owner. Earlier recognition of BRD makes earlier veterinary interventions (antibiotic or anti-inflammatory treatment) possible, which in turn reduce the severity of a disease outbreak and the associated costs. Based on the respiratory distress monitor for pigs that is already commercially available, SoundTalks is currently developing a respiratory distress monitor for calves.

The respiratory distress monitor of SoundTalks is based on the automated analysis of...
