Case Study

Livestock monitoring at Llanelli Farm

Llanelli is a 526-hectare family farm located in Bathurst, NSW. With its 1,500 head of sheep, Llanelli primarily targets the lamb market.

Through an all-in-one Farmdeck solution combining network connectivity, sensors, and our app, we enabled Llanelli to track and identify livestock, manage water tanks and dams levels, and surveillance the perimeter of the property. Smart surveillance cameras have been installed on the field to provide analytics on the sheep movements and give visibility to the owners on everything happening on their land. For individual livestock tracking, a tag reader was installed on paddock gates.

We developed the first high-frequency sheep ear tags in Australia to create a tracking distance of up to 8m with an accurate sheep count.
