Abstract

The application of thermal imaging in livestock is an innovative new technology, which can aid in the detection of injuries, lameness, infections and injection site reactions whilst minimising labour costs. Often, thermal imaging can detect a problem before it becomes apparent to the naked eye (sub-clinical levels) enabling rapid treatment, which prevents the disease from progressing.
