• Did you find any software that finds no of crops from aerial image?

  • OpenCV in C/C++ or Python. Check OpenRelief Git. The are writing code for OpenCV to recognize humans for drone to search and rescue use Arduplane + Raspberry Pi.
  • Can you color or tag the animals with markings to assist the CV process?

  • You could also use Amazon's Mechanical Turk.  You upload the pictures and pay someone like 15 cents to count the cows. You will get much more accurate numbers.

  • If the cattle stand out from the background, you could use a program like ImageJ and a plug-in to count the cattle. One of ImageJ's primary functions is to count biological cells on a slide, but you should be able to adapt that to count anything that shows up as a discrete blob.
