Methods: Based on Internet of things technology, this paper builds up a pig farm big data acquisition system, designs a detailed IOT topology architecture, a network communication protocol and an intelligent processing gateway system, implements an integrated big data acquisition system for large-scale pig farms.

Results: As a result, pig farm environmental factors, pigs’ feeding data and life monitoring video data, etc., can be comprehensively coordinated acquired. The experiment has been carried out in a pig farm in Guangdong province. One month consecutive experiment shows that our system can on-line monitor the farm environment information, pigs’ feeding and living conditions. It can catch the changes of pig farm environment and pigs’ growing status in time.
