grazing informationacoustic monitoringingestive behaviorfeed intaketemporal and spatial distribution of feed intake
The grazing information of livestock includes the location,the movement status,the grazing behavior,the feed intake as well as the spatial and temporal distribution of ingestion. The automatic monitoring of grazing information is of great significance in the balance of the grass and livestock,precision production of the livestock,research on animal science and grassland science,welfare breeding and reduction of the economic loss for herdsmen. In terms of the realization of automatically monitoring the grazing behavior,the feed intake as well as the spatial and temporal distribution of the ingestion for livestock,the relevant research advances are presented in detail according to the different signals or methods used in this paper. On this basis,the research progress in animal behavior monitoring and feed intake estimation based on acoustic method are introduced,so that it can provide a reference on deeply researching the automatic monitoring of animal grazing information.
