AGRICULTURE - Livestock Management

This livestock management solution assists farmers in understanding the health and wellbeing of livestock through real-time monitoring. This allows farmers to quickly assess and manage their investment through an online web portal accessible via mobile or desktop. Quickly identify herd bench mark, optimise your breeding program and catch animal health issues early.

Each animal is tagged with an RFID tag allowing the animals to be tracked, weighed and assessed - based on frequency, length of feed and the weight of the animal at each assessment. 

Solution includes: weigh scale indicators, electronic identification readers, loadbars, connected to an on-farm automation system at each feeding station and in turn communicate via 3G both to an online management portal and a computer system based in the farm office.

Maxon’s role in this solution was to introduce the real-time aspect through integration of 3G communications with a logger and portal integration.
