Thermal imaging has a massive range of uses; far to many to list. If you can think of it then thermal imaging can probably help!

Below are some of the main use:

 

Poultry Farmers

  • shed temperature control
  • bird temperature (both real time and from above)
  • avoiding bird grouping
  • find problems with machinery / feed distribution systems
  • find problems with electrical systems

Livestock Farmers

  • shed temperature
  • real time body temperature
  • detect feet / hip / shoulder problems
  • monitor animals are responding to treatment
  • heat detection
  • early mastitis detection
  • predict when going to give birth
  • monitor feed for hotspots
  • monitor silage clamps for spoilage
  • find problems with machinery
  • find problems with electrical systems
  • find lost animals (escaped, snow drifts etc)

Arable Farmers

  • find problems with machinery
  • find problems with electrical systems
  • predicting water stress in crops - help to plan irrigation schedules
  • disease detection and pathogen in plants
  • bruise detection in vegetables
  • monitor storage shed temperatures
  • monitor crop moisture

Fruit Farmers

  • find problems with machinery
  • find problems with electrical systems
  • predicting water stress in crops - help to plan irrigation schedules
  • disease detection and pathogen in plants
  • bruise detection in fruit
  • predicting fruit yield
  • predicting fruit maturity
  • monitor storage shed temperatures

Market Gardens / Garden Centres

  • greenhouse temperature control
  • find problems with electrical systems
  • find problems with machinery
  • predicting water stress in crops - help to plan irrigation schedules
  • disease detection and pathogen in plants
  • bruise detection in produce
  • predicting produce yield
  • predicting produce maturity

Agricultural Stores / Feed Mills / Recycling Centres

  • find problems with machinery
  • find problems with electrical systems
  • monitor raw materials for hotspots / fire hazards
  • check products for foreign bodies
  • shed temperature control
  • check waste for hotspots / fire hazards

Abattoirs

  • find problems with machinery
  • find problems with electrical systems
  • building and fridge / frezzer temperature control
  • check animal on arrival for any potential problems
  • monitor animals stress levels though body temperature in whilst in pens
  • check carcass for problems
  • check products for foreign bodies

Vets

  • real time body temperature
  • detect feet / hip / shoulder problems
  • early mastitis detection
  • general help when treating animals
  • predict when going to give birth
  • monitor animals are responding to treatment

Artificial Insemination Companies / Embryo Transfer Specialists

  • real time body temperature
  • heat detection

Gamekeepers / Professional Stalkers 

  • more accurately find vermin without alerting them
  • more accurately kill your prey without alerting them
  • protect you pheasant pen etc from poachers
  • monitor young chick health

General Farm Security Use 

  • great for security as no one will know you are watching them meaning you can raise the alarm and catch thieves in the act
  • Will find potenial hare coursers from a safe distance
