    Sensors have been used in agriculture to quantitatively monitor and control farming activities. Middleware like GSN have been developed to manage sensor stream data, while Semantic Sensor Network (SSN) ontology and Linked Data have been developed to describe sensor networks and enable sharing of data over the web respectively. Creating a semantic web enabled sensor network in a farm that can integrate not only data but also things in the farm, the farmers and other users is a challenge. In this paper, we present our Kirby Smart Farm as a prototypical livestock smartfarm system with an architecture for rapid development. We have used RabbitMQ and Virtuoso together with our GSN extended for RDF data generation, geo-spatial analysis and complex event processing to achieve a connected smart farm.
