uccess for any cattle business is heavily dependent upon production quality and efficiencies. We believe these are gained through a robust fertility program and sustainable farm practices to ensure cost, time and land impacts are minimised proportionate to production.

We have recently implemented a livestock intelligence reproduction monitoring application that enables us to shorten calving intervals and optimise conception rates, providing additional calves for sale each year, while reducing costs and risk, and improving herd genetics and cow wellbeing.  

Leveraging advanced behaviour monitoring based on proprietary key cow behaviours, our applications provide unmatched heat detection accuracy and actionable insight in real time. They identify the precise stage of heat and provide precise guidance for optimal insemination timing.

The system ensures effective and accurate identification of natural heats, eliminating the need for visual observation and, thus saving costs and avoiding interference with cows’ natural cycles. Early detection of anoestrous cows enables timely treatment to bring them back to cycling, and that, together with improved detection of aborted pregnancies, helps us increase herd yield and sustainability by reducing empty cow rate and culling.

Innovations to drive down operational costs while increasing yield

Monitoring water points across our properties is a very time and resource-intensive task. Sometimes if a water point fails, it can mean that other land management or animal-focused projects can slip in priority.
