Summary

Time lapse cameras are a relatively new technology that can fill this gap and help identify harder-to-detect issues in dairy facilities. These cameras work by taking photos at a preset interval and then automatically stitching those photos together to create a video clip. The video file can be saved on a computer or external storage device and played back on any compatible screen. The disadvantage of time lapse cameras is that the footage cannot be viewed in real-time. The great advantage of time lapse video is that multiple hours or days of activity can be viewed in minutes. This saves time and helps to identify problems that may otherwise go undetected. They are also relatively inexpensive, with most cameras selling for $100 to $400, depending on features and accessories. With a bit of planning, you can capture very useful footage of your dairy facilities. This information can be used to help identify and correct problems with facility design and management.
