Camera Systems for Dairy, Equine and General Farm Use
Animal welfare is the most common reason for installing cameras. Whether it is the ability to insure dairy employees are not being rough pushing the cows up for milking, or for horse owners to login several times a day to check on a mare about to foal. A correctly installed system can mean fewer wasted trips out, and a timely response when intervention is necessary.
Employee monitoring/staff safety
Cameras remove the variable of whether protocols are being followed (or not followed) by staff and outside contractors, and can pinpoint areas where steps can be modified or streamlined. Being able to go back in time and see if things were done properly is invaluable. Were the milk lines flushed properly, or have cooling temperatures been maintained in the milk barn? Are the horses handled with respect and care while the stalls were being cleaned? And once you have the video, you can use it in the future for training new employees.
Today, many farms and AG facilities use cameras for increased security. Having a camera at the fuel pumps, supply storage or other outbuildings not only acts as a deterrent, it also provides peace of mind. Let’s face it, we can’t be there 24 hours a day. Wouldn’t it be nice to see every vehicle that passes through the gate, no matter when it was?
