Derek Vote – Meat Scientist
“We were amazed at the speed at which Plainsight’s vision AI achieved a very accurate solution in all conditions, saving us significant resources, time and money. We’re now rolling out their AI solution across multiple locations.”
Meat Scientist at JBS USA
“Manual cattle counting is extremely challenging because it’s prone to inaccuracies, and environmental factors add even more complexity and unpredictability. After trying to automate our counting processes using computer vision with other vendors, we were unable to reach the accuracy levels we needed to make this technology operationally viable.
We turned to Plainsight, and they responded with custom models and a complete AI platform for end-to-end computer vision. We were amazed at the speed at which Plainsight’s vision AI achieved a very accurate solution in all conditions, saving us significant resources, time and money. We’re now rolling out their AI solution across multiple locations.”
Dr. Kyle Coble
Director of Nutrition Services at JBS USA
“Counting newly weaned pigs who are small in size yet large in activity can be challenging. As a result, the need for automating critical production tasks has long been needed and desired – yet producers have been waiting years for the right technology to arrive. When AI started becoming a reality in animal agriculture, we were hopeful this solution would be created.
Expecting the procedures and efforts to require many months of dedication to the project, we were amazed that in just 8 weeks we had an in-place vision AI solution that was tailored to our operation – and the accuracy was there. Our team worked closely with Plainsight throughout the process to customize the AI pig counting solution to our needs. Plainsight listened and delivered.”
