Have you ever wondered how powerful Internet technology can be to connect the whole world with just a few wires? From your mobile backup to the huge amount of technology, everything is stored in that little cloud and we don’t even realize how easy it is for us on the fly. Gartner Preview: 8.4 Billion Connected “Things” In 2017, more than 31 percent will be used in 2016, and the strength of the Internet is incredibly high. Technology, health, agriculture, e-commerce, telecom, or one of the fastest growing industries in the world is equally important in all sectors of the industry.
At the same time, the Indian dairy industry has made great strides in using the available technologies and at the same time striving to keep pace with the rest of the world. Before independence, India experienced a steady shortage of resources and many differences, which have since slowed down the growth of the dairy industry, although the situation has improved to this day. It is now one of the countries in India that hopes to expand the dairy business and expand its growth. The country has attracted remarkable growth in a short period of time by attracting the attention of the world and connecting India’s dairy industry to the world. Today, India is one of the world’s leading exporters of dairy products and is the world’s largest dairy producer.
Let’s take a look at some of the key issues in the history of IoT technology, how IT has transformed the dairy industry digitally, and why farmers are eager to use the Internet today.
- Remote management
It is common to see farmers working all day in the fields to manage their flocks. The dairy business is a lucrative business, but they often complain that the work is tedious. They cannot leave their flocks unattended for long periods of time. IOT fills these gaps in the most modern and simple way possible today. Animal clothing is now available to help farmers monitor and control their herd movements, feeding activities, temperature, weight, general health, dairy production and breeding. These monitors send alerts and notifications to the real-time tracking of the individual animal and increase milk production. And all of this can be easily managed from any remote location that precludes physical compulsion. Reduced time, individual attention and better management make IOT more efficient in any dairy farming.
Automotive IoT has proven to be extremely effective, especially in the dairy industry in India. Introducing automated work throughout the entire milk production, collection and procurement process has saved a lot of capital and resources. It is important to check the quality of the milk to make sure it is suitable for the next process. There are a variety of dairy products in the market that determine the exact values of fat, SNF, water volume and milk volume. Such devices reduce the time it takes to test multiple milk samples at a dairy center every day. There are also a variety of applications available for farmers to manage their dairy business.
- Capture and protect information
The more digital the technology, the more compelling it is to store and protect data. When you rely on technology to simplify and automate your work, you expect the information to remain in a safe place. The devices used during milk collection are connected to the Internet that stores data and transmits it to the cloud, creating a secure repository to store the data. The information obtained will be stored in a centralized location that allows for consistent consistency and access from any remote location. With each passing day, many businesses are asking for cloud storage to create their own data storage. Gartner predicts that by 2020, IOT will increase data center demand by less than 3%.
- Electronic payments
Since the inception of the Digital India initiative, the government and the industry, especially the dairy industry, have been focusing on digitalization. To support this, the government has announced various policies and subsidies for the safety of farmers and dairy farmers. One of the motivation for electronic payments is to maintain e-wallets. The idea is that farmers and dairy producers will get rid of the differences that have already made so much difference and accept them directly into their bank accounts. The policy aims to stem the tide of farmers’ growing debt burden due to irregular payments. The policy allows farmers to receive timely payments, receive direct benefits, and build a well-connected channel or medium-transparent system with the help of IoT.
- Easy and effective management
Today, many villages in India lack the infrastructure and resources needed to develop and control dairy farms. Although there are still many farms that follow traditional methods to develop dairy farming, farmers are using various technologies to develop the same technology, thanks to advances in technology. Thanks to IOT, farmers can optimize their consumption if they have limited resources. It facilitates access to the digital world, where farmers can easily communicate with millions of farmers, gain pre-existing knowledge and support, and improve their dairy farming practices. As a result, in addition to earning higher income from productivity, an improved lifestyle is also more satisfying.
- Effective decision-making
“One of the hallmarks of this new era is that it has tripled the number of business decisions in five years,” says Eric Brinjolfsson, professor of information technology at MIT. As the dairy industry begins to consume so much information through IoT’s machine learning algorithms, the industry begins to make information and decisions in an automated way. The Indian dairy industry will continue to make effective decisions by analyzing the vast amount of information available on the web in an instant, avoiding consumer buying behavior and material purchases. Many farmers generally use technologies in their dairy farms to increase productivity and profitability.
