Environments with higher sanitary challenges can impact piglet productivity negatively. Using imagery to monitor this influence offers an innovative and precise approach to assessing environmental effects on animal performance. Through camera surveillance, it's possible to capture and analyze piglet behavior in challenging environments, enabling the identification of interaction patterns, stress levels, feeding habits, and general activities. This continuous and detailed monitoring provides valuable insights into how the sanitary environment affects piglet productivity, enabling the implementation of more effective and adaptive management strategies to optimize the performance and welfare of these animals.
