Research on Automatic Recognition of Dairy Cow Daily Behaviors Based on Deep Learning

Simple Summary

Dairy cow behavior detection is of great significance for cattle health management. Through the detection of the four behaviors of dairy cows—standing, lying, eating, and drinking—we can gain valuable insights into the well-being of cows. For example, hoof disease can increase the amount of time a cow lies down, and digestive system issues can cause a decrease in food intake. Visual inspection of cow behavior can keep track of changes in cow behavior, and non-invasive detection can reduce cow discomfort and improve animal welfare. In this study, we employed computer vision-based deep learning techniques for the detection of cow behavior, and experimental results demonstrated its promising application in real farm settings.
