Utilizing multiple cameras, fronts and backs can be graded accurately based on the user’s definable parameters, which can be tuned to suit different flock profiles. The data collected is added to the bird weight captured at an in-line or transfer weigh station, and the birds are correctly distributed according to production requirements.
