Management system for livestock farming is very complex system in general and thus is strictly influenced by several constrain such as climate, weather, and livestock conditions, and so on. Livestock managers (Farmers) try to optimize utilization of agricultural resources to obtain good product having both quality and quantity. Particularly, various environmental IoT sensors are being used to substitute the areas that are difficult for people to do directly. Although the Korea livestock industry is becoming larger in scale and systematic, it is still receiving damages from various diseases and difficulty in maintaining growth and development environment. To reduce such damages, this paper proposes an IoT based management system for collecting environmental information for real-time monitoring by using various environmental IoT sensors. The proposed system allows manager to easily monitor via PC and smart devices by deviating from the existing manual method of directly checking growth and development environment. In addition, it has been enhanced to extend the life of IoT sensors through the method of efficiently collecting energy data for extending the slip time of IoT node while minimizing routing path.
