Truck sensors help drivers monitor livestock welfare

Canada’s livestock and livestock transportation industries continue to look for ways to ensure the comfort, health and welfare of farm animals during transportation. Last year, the Canadian Animal Health Coalition (CAHC) teamed up with Transport Genie Ltd., a technology company based in Guelph, Ont., to launch a two-year research project that uses remote wireless sensors to monitor environmental conditions inside livestock trailers. The project comes as the country’s livestock and transportation industries adapt to new industry-wide regulations that were introduced in February. The regulations are designed to ensure that livestock animals are healthy, comfortable and properly cared for during transit.
