Cows wearing 5G-connected collars that send data to the app on everything from what they’re eating to how they’re sleeping … the ability to successfully plant, tend and harvest a crop without a single human stepping foot in the field … there’s no debate about the fact that radical change is happening in our industry. And the pace of this change has never been faster than it is today.

The animal health and agricultural industries find themselves in a state of major transition and with change comes opportunity. We humans continue to find new, innovative ways to live alongside the animals in our lives and rapid technological development is allowing more sustainable business models to develop, helping to secure this planet that we all share for future generations.

Evolving global regulations, major industrial consolidation and new online marketplaces continue to grab headlines and influence behaviours, while artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) are quickly transforming large areas of the sector. Biotech, genomics, cloud computing and big data – they are all playing a part in revolutionising the future of animal health and agriculture.

And then there’s next generation 5G networks, which have the potential to cause further disruption, innovation and change. 5G networks can be 100 times faster than 4G, making communication between devices and servers much, much quicker. 5G can also carry far more data than other networks, making the technology ideal for transmitting information from remote sensors and drones, key tools that are being tested by farmers.

Agri-Tech is booming business, yet the pace of this change could become overwhelming for some. The volume of information out there is mind-blowing, with analytics and detailed data mineable on almost every aspect of the industry.

This change means that it’s never been more important to hire the right people to help your company exploit these transformative new opportunities. Hiring the right people enables a company to bring its vision to fruition and is a key element in business success. However, just as technology can make the modern workforce more productive, it also presents a number of challenges, one of which is hiring the right people to keep pace with and manage these rapid technological changes and even be the next generation of change makers themselves.

“Change will not come if we wait for some other person, or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.”

― Barack Obama
