Abstract


Estimate the thermal comfort of poultry with precision is becoming increasingly important for the industry due to small profit margins in the sector and the need to reduce production losses. The aim of this study was to estimate the thermal comfort of broiler breeders reared in a climatic chamber under controlled environments known from the analysis of the clustering behavior of the group, using techniques of image analysis in standard RGB movies. The images were processed to highlight areas of interest and then were extracted values of area and perimeter of the forms assumed by groups of birds. It was found that in the analysis agglomeration index was influenced by the air temperature and the ammonia concentration. This result validated the agglomeration index as a potential indicator of wellbeing birds thermal and fostered the software development, allowing automatic monitoring of the production environment. Index Terms - animal welfare, computer vision, group behavior, poultry.
