Farmex was born out of research into ventilation for pig buildings at Reading University in 1979. Since then the company has become the leading specialist supplier of temperature control, alarm and monitoring equipment for agriculture.

The company’s dicam range has now been used for a diverse range of applications:

  • Firework sequencing
  • Feed mill operation
  • Slaughterhouse monitoring
  • Broiler ventilation
  • Pig weighing
  • Energy monitoring
  • Lighting control
  • Water treatment plant monitoring
  • Pump house control

All alongside Farmex's core business of ventilation for pig buildings.

Most recently, wireless sensors and wireless mesh networks have allowed us to diversify into:

  • Grain store monitoring
  • Pheasant rearing alarm systems
  • Commercial energy use monitoring
  • Site intruder alarm systems

As well as reducing the installed cost of systems in existing markets.


Real-time production monitoring is a particular specialisation and no one else in the world has as much accumulated data from livestock production sites or experience in its interpretation.

Any parameter can be measured and analysed including:

  • Water use
  • Energy consumption
  • Feed flow
  • Silo weight
  • Light intensity
  • Air quality
  • Humidity
  • Fluid level

to name but a few.


Farmex exports its technologies to the USA and elsewhere around the world and is always pleased to look at providing new solutions to problems old and new.
