An integrated environmental control system to auto-regulate/automatically regulate environment of livestock breeding was designed and tested. The system terminal simulated artificial intelligence to achieve automation by detecting the farming environment parameters and comparing the parameters with the designed ones. The system consisted of devices for spray and cooling, ventilation, light producing, and disinfection, and an intelligent measurement and control terminal. The terminal was the core/most important part of the system; it performed on-site automatic collection and regulation of environmental parameters, and it sent the collected data to the host computer to be saved via a wireless device. The performance experiments proved that the system was stable and reliable, having a significant effect on environmental regulation for livestock breeding.
