Weather and Climate

The benefits of using digital technology for weather and climate management  means farmers can monitor, analyse and predict conditions with ever-increasing precision. Using existing and emerging technologies, growers are able to:

  • Integrate weather monitoring devices and smart ear tags to increase accuracy in animal tracking, and improve understanding of animal health, welfare, movements, feeding rates, and growth rates
  • monitor temperature and humidity in feed lots to help predict and manage Excessive Heat Loads (EHL)
  • Collect more precise, real-time information about pasture and soil moisture conditions
  • Utilise data for improved input (i.e. feed, water) efficiency and farm planning
  • Determine when to purchase supplementary feed
  • Plan ahead and reduce risk
  • Detect conditions that promote parasites and diseases
