BIG DATA ANALYTICS HELPS WITH COW HERDING
Researchers have constructed a digital model that incorporates a financial function to explore the behavior of cow herds. This is an example of how big data analytics and computer modeling can be applied to farming. Agriculture is reaping the benefits of new technology. One example of this process is with the herding of cows, which has been shown to be more complex than many farmers had realized. For instance, a research group has discovered that what appears to be a randomly dispersed herd, peacefully eating grass, is instead a complex system of individual animals, each facing differing tensions.
