Abstract: Tracking the behaviour of livestock enables early detection and thus, prevention of contagious diseases in modern animal farms. Apart from economic gains, this would reduce the amount of antibiotics used in livestock farming which otherwise enters the human diet exasperating the epidemic of antibiotic resistance - a leading cause of death. We could use standard video cameras, available in most modern farms, to monitor livestock. However, most computer vision algorithms perform poorly on this task, primarily because, (i) animals bred in farms look identical, lacking any obvious spatial signature, (ii) none of the existing trackers are robust for long duration, and (iii) real-world conditions such as changing illumination, frequent occlusion, varying camera angles, and sizes of the animals make it hard for models to generalize. Given these challenges, we develop an end-to-end behaviour monitoring system for group-housed pigs to perform simultaneous instance level segmentation, tracking, action recognition and re-identification (STAR) tasks. We present starformer, the first end-to-end multiple-object livestock monitoring framework that learns instance-level embeddings for grouped pigs through the use of transformer architecture. For benchmarking, we present Pigtrace, a carefully curated dataset comprising video sequences with instance level bounding box, segmentation, tracking and activity classification of pigs in real indoor farming environment. Using simultaneous optimization on STAR tasks we show that starformer outperforms popular baseline models trained for individual tasks.
