We understand the importance of managing livestock and crops whether it be on a 1M acre property to a small vineyard. Applying technologies to monitor the physical parameters surrounding your asset adds value by taking the guess work out of management. Our fully autonomous systems with remote telemetry allow you to view the desired conditions that help you make decisions from the comfort of your own home. Couple this with any current feed, pump or reticulate system to automate the process and save you time and resources.
With the addition of a monitoring station on your farm you can:
- Better manage your livestock and feedlots with weather (humanity, temp, rainfall), evaporation and heat stress monitors to calculate Heat Load Index (HLI) and Accumulate Health Load Units (AHLU). Excessive heat load (EHL), or heat stress, describes the situation in which feedlot livestock, primarily cattle, are not able to dissipate body heat effectively and their body temperature rises above normal. EHL initially leads to reduced feed intake and production losses but can, in extreme cases, lead to organ damage and death.
- Measure weather patterns, soil conditions and moisture levels in your crop with the addition of rainfall monitor, wet leaf and soil moisture sensors.
- Manage odour drift and dust with the application of a weather station and dust monitor at sensitive receptors (e.g. farm house, neighbours, residential areas, etc).
- Be pro-active by setting early warning levels and receive SMS and email warnings or updates on conditions.
By applying today’s technology agricultural monitoring can help reduce time spent onsite, provide assurance and maximise yields with any application.
