Method or apparatus used to determine the number of animals in a group of animals.
(1) Note. Animal counting is typically performed at the time they are "harvested," i.e., collected and taken to market. As such many of the animal counting subject matter finds original classification in areas related to animal relocating, where they are counted as they are being conveyed or loaded into a vehicle for transporting them to market. Similarly, animal counting may be performed during sorting, or in the stock yard, housing, or any other environment.
