Title: LIVESTOCK-FARMING SYSTEM
Abstract:
Livestock-farming system (1), comprising an animal space (4), such as an animal shed or a meadow, for keeping livestock animals (9), and a detector system (17, 24) for detecting an entity (20) within a predefined detection zone (18), wherein the detector system comprises - a detector (17), and - a control unit (24) which comprises a memory (28) and is connected to the former, wherein detecting comprises receiving a signal from the detection zone using the detector, which signal is suitable for recognising the entity, and wherein the control unit processes the received signal to yield detection data relating to the entity, and stores these in the memory. In this way, it is automatically recorded which entities visit the animal space or at least come sufficiently close to it to have an effect thereon. It is then possible to take respective action, if desired automatically.
