CapTemp Smart Farming Solution for Poultry House Monitoring and Control Increases Stock Production by 20%

Smart Farming Solution for Remote Monitoring of Poultry House

CapTemp developed a smart farming solution that monitors, controls & analyzes different assets of a poultry house for increased stock production.

POMPAL, PORTUGAL, PORTUGAL, January 21, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — CapTemp developed a smart farming solution that monitors, controls and analyzes different assets of a poultry house for improved animal production. Previously, the poultry farmer did not have an automated monitoring system or data analytic tools to gain insights on livestock or farm equipment, resulting in stock production loss of 20%. To operate more profitably, the farmer needed to eliminate manual methods and implement an information technology tool that could connect, track, control and analyze different processes within the poultry house.

Partnering with Equiporave Iberica, market leaders in pig and poultry equipment, CapTemp developed a sensor control system solution that collects and reports data on different parameters within the poultry house such as temperature, humidity and gases as well as machine energy consumption. Data logging and redundancy functions provide for a fail-safe solution with customized control features such as scheduled machine usage when energy is lower cost.

CapTemp implemented its Nidus-IT Monitoring and Control System that features temperature, humidity, CO2, CO, CH4, NH3 and H2S sensors installed on key equipment to monitor different operating conditions within the poultry house. CapTemp also installed Lda Feed-bin weight scales that allows famers and feed companies to assess feed levels in bins to improve feed distribution and logistics.

With the sensors networked to a central alarm system, operators are alerted of unusual conditions in real-time by Internet, e-mail, SMS or GSM. With information from the Nidus-IT Monitoring and Control System available over the Internet, operators can remotely monitor different parameters from a single location and make appropriate adjustments to environmental conditions.

Through the implementation of the CapTemp monitoring and control solution, the farmer:

• Reduced energy and feed costs due to better environmental conditions
• Improved daily weight gains for improved animal growth
• Reduced stock mortality rate to zero
• Reduced required medicines to improve health of stock
• Monitors and controls harmful gases (Nh3 and CO2) to maintain ideal environmental conditions to increase productivity index by 20 points.

Implementation of the CapTemp Nidus-IT monitoring and control system helped decrease mortality rates to zero while improving food transformation and stock mean weight while decreasing mean age. For nearly a decade, CapTemp and Equiporave Iberica collaborate on developing customized sensor control systems to help farmers operate smarter by staying connected with their different operations.

The Next Big Thing in the Supply Chain

The Next Big Thing in the Supply Chain

In the rapid digital advancement of the global economy, a time for change has finally come for the operating models of shipping and logistics providers.

Our tools unlock shipment data that otherwise gets buried or lost in emails and phone calls, and turns that information into actionable insights that make your work easier and more efficient”

— Jeff Wehner – COO, and Co-Founder @Haven

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, UNITED STATES, January 21, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — In the rapid digital advancement of the global economy, a time for change has finally come for the operating models of shipping and logistics providers.
A shift in the supply chain strategy needs to be made in order to cater to the high demand of same-day delivery purchases with a merchandise value expected to reach USD $4.03 Billion this year. New self-learning algorithms and collaboration within the shipping and logistics industry are key in this upcoming shift.

Logistics and Everything-as-a-Service

The subscription-based model is one of the many trends in the evolving digital transformation journey of many businesses today and is predicted to grow by more than 38% by 2020.

Everything-as-a-service is beneficial because the consumer receives continuous services and the producer gets a long term contract with the consumer. This model does not require the consumer to make a large investment, in the beginning, allowing for vertical and horizontal scaling.

Advanced transportation management software (TMS) can implement the model of software-as-a-service by automating global logistics for commodity traders, food producers, mining and metals, retail, manufacturing companies, and other large shippers. "In a system notorious for inefficiency, our solutions-focused TMS streamlines workloads, saving over 50,000 hours of human time thus far," says Jeff Wehner, COO, and Co-Founder at Haven Inc. "Our tools unlock shipment data that otherwise gets buried or lost in emails and phone calls, and turns that information into actionable insights that make your work easier and more efficient. With Haven, you trade tedium and frustration for greater transparency and smoother collaboration".

Autonomous Mobile Robotics are Changing the Logistics Industry

The global logistics and warehouse robot market is forecasted to grow exponentially by the year 2021 reaching $14.43 Billion due to the increasing need for industry automation. Robots provide a cheaper source of labor for businesses, require less time to train than the human workforce and eliminate the amount of human error. They can perform more efficiently in tasks such as picking up and unloading containers, home deliveries, and sorting centers.

There are four leading types of Autonomous Mobile Robots with different warehouse uses:

1. Goods-to-person picking robots

These robots can be programmed to move through designated routes in the warehouse to move product from stations to workers or vice-versa. This eliminates the significant time it takes for the human workforce to walk between areas in the warehouse. Due to upgrades in mobility, artificial intelligence, and sensors the robots can be used in almost any environment.

2. Self-driving forklifts

Forklifts possessing more complex navigation features, scanners, and audio and visual indicators can safely move about a warehouse while in the presence of the human workforce. They can detect an object and adjust their course accordingly. The ZF Innovator Forklift is one example of the driverless forklift that can locate goods in a warehouse and when they are scheduled to arrive. It will then optimize the loading process, create tasks, and update the ERP system of product placement and movement.

3. Autonomous inventory robots

Most companies will conduct an inventory sweep every month to every few months, taking a lengthy amount of time to do so. With autonomous inventory robots, companies can conduct inventory sweeps every couple of hours keeping their data consistently up-to-date and allow for more efficient storage layout. Although these robots are costly, a customer can save up to a million a year in labor reduction, waste reduction, and inventory optimization.

4. Unmanned aerial vehicles

Unmanned autonomous vehicles (UAVs) currently have RFID-scanning technology give companies real-time inventory visibility into their warehouse. Similar to the autonomous inventory robots, they can perform inventory sweeps then upload the results to any inventory management system. Sensors on the aerial vehicles prevent collision and enable them to fly in unique layouts.

Unlocking Transparency in Supply Chain via Blockchain

The blockchain is an incorruptible digital ledger of economic transactions that can be programmed to record not just financial transactions but virtually everything of value.

“The reason it’s exciting in this industry is because the industry is full of trading. Blockchain brings about the hope of truth, the hope that we can all still do that but then have a true system that we all agree that this is our general ledger,” says Matt Tillman, CEO, and Co-Founder at Haven Inc. “What we have to do to make blockchain work is that a lot of companies have to agree that they want to use the same shared database.” Haven platform can be compatible to anyone using blockchain.

In a global economy that is continually evolving, new trends have emerged in the shipping and logistics industry. The demand for a more efficient strategy in the supply chain has resulted in the utilization of the model of everything-as-a-service, autonomous mobile robots, and the adoption of advanced supply chain and logistics platforms. The digital world will command for constant advancements as the global sharing economy continues to grow.

CANADIAN START UP GRAIN DISCOVERY EXECUTES WORLD’S FIRST CORN TRANSACTION USING BLOCKCHAIN

New tech start-up Grain Discovery will revolutionize how farmers trade their grain.

The way grain is bought and sold hasn't changed much since our grandparents were farming! In the age of Amazon and eBay, we reckoned the industry deserves better.”

— Rory O’Sullivan, CEO of Grain Discovery

PRINCE EDWARD COUNTY, ONTARIO, CANADA, January 16, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — New tech start-up Grain Discovery sets its sights on transforming the agriculture industry following the world’s first corn transaction using blockchain. This trade on the Grain Discovery platform is the first step in creating a more modern, transparent, and secure agricultural supply chain.

Founded in 2018 by leaders in the commodities, blockchain, trading and data fields, Grain Discovery aims to revolutionize how farmers trade their grain.

"Farming technology in the agricultural industry is incredibly advanced," explained Rory O’Sullivan, CEO of Grain Discovery. "However, the way grain is bought and sold hasn't changed much since our grandparents were farming! In the age of Amazon and eBay, we reckoned the industry deserves better."

Grain Discovery’s online marketplace allows farmers and buyers to advertise their deals in real time and complete their trades through blockchain, resulting in secure and instant payment and built-in traceability that continues beyond the farm gate.

On December 24, 2018, following the unexpected rejection of two loads of corn, tested on-site to be just over the threshold for vomitoxin – a toxin produced by mould that has damaged much of Ontario’s corn harvest – Prince Edward County farmers Larry Reynolds and Lloyd Crowe used the Grain Discovery platform to find a new local buyer, confirm the trade and receive payment instantly.

“By using Grain Discovery, we were not only able to avoid hours of searching for a new buyer, but found one just down the road, at a better price than the original deal, and were paid instantly," said Mr. Reynolds.

Grain Discovery is focused on untangling the complicated supply chain paths for grains. The Grain Discovery platform gives more control to both farmers and buyers and has endless applications, from allowing consumers to see the path their food travelled, to calculating the carbon intensity behind the production of food and biofuels.

"We are participating in a number of other pilot projects this year, including tracing soybeans from seeds in Canada to the export market in Japan and coffee from Columbia to your local café,” said Mr. O’Sullivan. “This transaction was the vital first step towards realizing our goals.”

For farmers like Mr. Reynolds it’s a simple equation: “If blockchain technology means a few extra dollars in my pocket and a few hours less trucking, then that’s a win.”

About Grain Discovery
Founded in Ontario in 2018 by leaders in the commodities, blockchain, trading systems and data fields, Grain Discovery is committed to untangling the complicated supply chain for grains, using blockchain technology to increase the transparency, security, efficiency and traceability of the supply chain.

Best Birding Trips in Spain

birding trip

Birding trip in Extremadura

Migration birding trip at Tarifa

There is simply no finer European country in which to start or deepen an interest in birdwatching. But is there really a best birding trip in Spain?

Birdwatching in Spain is so exciting that you need an hour’s downtime to recharge batteries before enjoying it all over again. ”

— James Lowen

OAKHAM, RUTLAND, UNITED KINGDOM, January 16, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Spain is a must-visit destination for any keen bird and wildlife watcher. In Spain’s remarkably varied countryside, vultures soar around mountain peaks, larks compete for their aerial symphonies on never-ending grasslands, and bubblegum-pink flamingoes make seaside lagoons blush. Moreover, this land of avian plenty funnels migrant birds between the continents of Europe and Africa. There is simply no finer European country in which to start or deepen an interest in birdwatching. But amidst this feathered wealth, is there really a best birding trip in Spain?

Birdwatching in Spain is so exciting that you need an hour’s downtime to recharge batteries before enjoying it all over again. More pertinently, it is the quintessentially Spanish combination of siestas and recreation that makes the country such a convenient place to ease into birdwatching as part of a family holiday – or to combine a business trip or city break with a bird-filled walk.

Two of the best locations for a birding trip in Spain, are Extremadura and Andalusia (or Andalucía).

A winter birding trip to Extremadura, where Europe’s mightiest congregation of Cranes – 130,000, all in – crafts Extremadura’s winter soundscapes, their rippling calls recalling fragile, forlorn oboes. There are myriad joyous ways to experience these lissom supermodels. Watch a family tiptoeing along a rice-field catwalk. Admire a score lazing under silvery-green, Afro-coiffured holm oaks. Or gawp at thousands seeking collective security in a lakeside roost. Then search for grassland-loving specialities on savanna-like plains near Trujillo. A Pin-tailed Sandgrouse whirrs overhead, purring its arrival. A close-knit party of Little Bustard huddles between sheep. And Europe’s heaviest flying bird, Great Bustard, strides imperiously, proclaiming ownership and generating gasps of awe.

Migration birding trip at Tarifa in late summer. After several misty days, the skies have cleared. The celestial blueness above Tarifa is rapidly filling with scores – nay, hundreds – of long-winged forms. There are White Storks, elongated bill and legs protruding front and rear. There are Honey Buzzards, languid and long-tailed. There are Booted Eagles, muscly and compact. There are Black Kites, uncompromisingly swarthy. And there are Griffon Vultures, immense and cavalier. All are harnessing thermals of sun-warmed air before soaring southwards towards wintering grounds in Africa.

Blue Sky Wildlife, working in collaboration with the Spanish Tourist Office, has put together a one-stop online shop or market place showcasing eleven local wildlife specialists who between them offer more than 70 tours to this amazing wildlife destination, with prices starting from a little as €40 for a half day trip. Many of the tours are available throughout the year for the independent traveller seeking to see wildlife in Spain.

Who better to organise a birdwatching holiday than one of the local wildlife specialists based in Spain itself. Their local knowledge and expertise, English-speaking guides, who live and breathe the country’s astonishing wildlife, mean that you have the very best chance of catching up with the key species you want to see. And the comprehensive selection of wildlife specialists and tours enable travellers to enquire about a tour they want directly, simply by using the enquiry tab on each listings page.

Ecological Assets Boost Western Farm and Ranch Land Value

A potential mitigation bank near Olympia, Washington.

Ecological assets contribute an average of about $40,000 per acre in gross land value for mid-to-large sized Western farms and ranches.

EASI confirmed today that ecological assets contribute an average of about $40,000 per acre in gross land value for mid-to-large sized Western farms and ranches.”

— William Coleman

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 15, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — San Francisco (EASI) – Eco-Asset Solutions and Innovations (EASI) confirmed today that ecological assets contribute an average of about $40,000 per acre in gross land value for mid-to-large sized farms and ranches in the Western region, according to William Coleman, EASI’s founder and CEO.

The company has just completed its 11th eco-asset value study in the past two years. “People are surprised to learn how much value lies in land-based ecological assets,” said Coleman. “They can’t imagine that that tens of thousands of dollars in per-acre value might have gone unseen for so long.”

About Eco-Assets

Ecological assets, eco-assets for short, include compensatory mitigation credits for protection of wetlands and streams, rare species and habitats, for prevention of nutrient runoff, and for forest and soil carbon sequestration. Eco-Assets have been around since the 1980s when wetland mitigation banking began. California first began conservation banking for rare species and habitats in the 1990s. Water quality or nutrient trading began in the 2000s with EPA-approved programs in the eastern U.S. Carbon sequestration was also initiated by EPA in the same time frame.
EASI’s specialty is in understanding and advancing the market for land-based eco-assets including those in watersheds. Based on their 2018 assessment of government approved mitigation banks, landowners currently hold more than $200 billion in mitigation credit assets coast to coast. The annual transaction value for mitigation credits is between $1.5 and $2 billion based on more than a thousand mitigation credit value records EASI has gathered as part of its project work.

Leaving Money on the Table

The eleven studies were conducted in California, Montana, Oregon and Washington where an average of $40,000 in potential added value was found to be tied to a property’s ecological features. This potential value could be developed as parallel income alongside grazing, selective timber harvest, hunting and fishing as well as other land uses that are compatible with mitigation bank operations.

“Eleven studies doesn’t sound like a lot, given the large number of farms and ranches in the West,” Coleman said. “But the pattern has been consistent. We’ve learned that landowners need to take another look at current use options and market value of the acres they own. Otherwise they may be leaving serious money on the table.”

Three Eco-Asset Value Drivers

According to Coleman farms and ranches are often undervalued because landowners don’t think to include ecological assets in highest and best use determinations. “Eco-assets can boost farm and ranch revenues. They can increase land appraisal value. And they can shorten the land sales cycle when undeveloped eco-assets are included in the deal. That means three land value drivers can be linked to ecological assets. Although USDA and Department of Interior have been promoting these markets for years, the agencies don’t communicate in business terms to farmers and ranchers. Land appraisers haven’t been trained up in this area either. This leaves most landowners in the dark about the value of eco-assets fixed to their land.”

Tangible or Intangible Assets?

Mitigation credits are considered intangible property because they are indirect representations of natural resource value. But they capture a kind of value that is anchored to the land like other tangible natural resources. “One credit at a time, acres are dedicated as compensation to mitigate or offset development impacts to watersheds and ecosystems. The credits are mined from the mitigation bank, used up, just as if you were removing an extractable resource. That’s why we compare them to minerals or oil and gas,” Coleman said.

Eco-Asset ROI

Just like any projected mining activity, the gross market value of mitigation credits has to be compared against the cost of mitigation bank development and operation. This leads to an overall net project value, or return on investment for a potential mitigation bank. “Mitigation banking is a fully-fledged business niche and should be treated as such, approached with the same consideration for risk and reward.” Coleman explained. “We are seeing an average ROI of about three to one in these Western states. But ROI varies according to the complexity of the mitigation bank and its location relative to mitigation credit demand.”

Certain regions of the country have seen the demand for mitigation credits skyrocket. California, with its strong economy and concern for protecting environmental quality, leads the country in terms of the number and diversity of mitigation banks. “But projects in Oregon and Washington have shown that the mitigation banking business there seems to have a very strong future.”

As for the future of the industry as a whole? Coleman is seeing it quickly mature. “The Southeast region carries the highest density of mitigation banking activity,” he said. “The Ohio Basin and upper Midwest too. Those areas may be market saturated. But we think there are developing markets, especially in Pennsylvania and Texas but also in the Breadbasket states and in Colorado.”

Then he added this afterthought. “Don’t forget about New Mexico. The climate may be quickly changing in the desert Southwest. More precipitation. That would lead to more land development and more compensatory mitigation banks as a result. Investors may want to take note.”

Part of this process analysing any obstacles in financial transactions in the rural and agricultural industry, and working alongside a host of partners to eliminate these issues, or alleviate them.

Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise (MSME) Finance
Unfortunately, most of the micro, small and medium enterprises in Tanzania can’t facilitate growth because of restricted access to financial aid. Another barrier is MSMEs not using financial services and products effectively, thus limiting themselves.

FSDT not only works with various financial institutions, tech companies (and other) to improve financial service delivery, but they also aim to educate MSMEs on how to utilise these services for maximum benefit.

Digital Finance
By partnering with mobile network operators and financial institutions, FSDT addresses the lack of access to financial services via digital/electronic channels at bank branches and ATMs.

Insurance
FSDT’s latest venture is to help improve Tanzania’s uptake for insurance from 13% to 30%. This will be achieved by educating potential customers about the benefits of insurance, in order to drive up the current low demand for insurance.

Variety of product offerings and distributions channels will also need to be increased, along with training more personnel.
