Solutions: Livestock Breeding (Part 5)
In the next series of articles, BigBang Core will look into a number of different industries that are benefitting from blockchain technology.
Undoubtedly, the livestock industry holds a distinctive position in a country’s socio-economic development. It includes the raising of animals such as horses, sheep, swine, cattle, goats, cows, etc., and the production of animal products for consumers.
Blockchain technology has expanded its sphere of influence to the livestock industry, catering to the needs of the users. It provides integrity and reliability in the supply chain and rectifies the issues related to livestock breeding.
Issues with Livestock Breeding
Nowadays, Livestock breeding encounters numerous challenges. Through traditional mechanisms, it is difficult to assess the source of disease and statistics are often littered with errors. There is no proper management system for monitoring the whole breeding process. Some of the major issues are given below:
Manual statistics are insufficient and often contain a plethora of errors. Furthermore, the recording and transmission of data are full of problems which include poor immediacy, low efficiency, etc.
Difficult Disease Monitoring
It is difficult to monitor the spread of a disease manually. Because of the vast number and scale of centralized breeding, major problems can occur, such as product safety, the monitoring of the breeding process, and the spread of disease.
Falsified Quarantine Certificate
The majority of breeding farms have a monopoly on the industry. However, the statistics of breeding and quarantine data are outdated, and often falsified.
Blockchain in Livestock Breeding
Blockchain is capable of changing the nature of how we manage livestock breeding. The utilization of blockchain will provide traceability and ensure food safety. It will aid in lowering the supply chain cost. Benefits of using blockchain technology in livestock breeding are:
- Safety and Traceability
- Transparency of all supply chain nodes
- Enhanced data monitoring
- Livestock Monitoring and Quality Assurance
Blockchain ensures transparency in the supply chain. It reduces the risk of fraud and inaccuracies in the supply chain caused by traditional, manual inspection systems and paper tracking. It will enable the users to produce various statistics necessary to manage the supply chain daily, monthly, and annually. Blockchain will aid in optimizing the whole supply chain.
BigBang Core: One Step Ahead in Livestock Breeding
BigBang Core employs blockchain technology and a traceability system for recording product data on-chain to ensure the authenticity of the data. The data collected during the whole process of animal source, transportation, and sales is linearly closed to ensure that everyone participating in the blockchain can see the information of each link with transparency. After the recording of the information on the production, sales, transportation, and other links, it can be traced and cannot be tampered with. BigBang Core provides the following benefits:
Completely Transparent Consumption Process
BigBang Core enables you to monitor the whole “production-sales” process for ensuring that the ingredients and nutrients in agricultural products meet the standards when compared to past monitoring data.
Automated Management and Monitoring System
BigBang Core forms an automated monitoring and management system. It enables you to develop animal identification devices along with a management and analysis system based on RFID (Radio-Frequency Identification) technology to form an automated monitoring system.
Refined Breeding Schemes
BigBang Core ensures the provision of refined and detailed breeding schemes. The RFID management system is capable of controlling the type of feed and the number of feedings, thereby realizing digital, detailed feeding and improving the advantages of breeding.
BigBang Core enables you to track the source and prevent and control epidemics. Employing the uniqueness of RFID in the Internet of Things, managers can track the flow of milk within said farm/ranch. In the case of any disease being detected, the source can be found quickly.
Provision of Accurate Data for Relevant Government Departments
BigBang Core provides comprehensive and accurate reference materials for government functional ministries. These can also be employed as a foundation for the appraisal of government policy subsidies.
The Future is Bright
BigBang Core employs a traceability system and blockchain technology for recording item data on-chain to ensure the authenticity of the data. It promises to provide a completely transparent consumption process and an automated monitoring and management system. Furthermore, it provides accurate data that can be provided to government functional ministries. Once again, we can see how the use of blockchain technology enables industries to “trim the fat”, so to speak, streamlining how businesses operate and in turn, saving everyone time and money.
