Big (pig) data and the internet of swine things. A new paradigm in the industry

The present work addresses the use of data in improving decision making and farm productivity, one of the aspects that has generated more interest in swine production in recent years. In the current review, the limitations of data management and recently developed strategies in this sector have been revised, together with the need for new technologies and their use in the evolution of the precision livestock farming concept. The importance of traditional animal-oriented data together with environment-oriented data are stressed.
