|Title:||GPS livestock tracking: an opportunity for a coordinated approach to research, development and extension||Contributor(s):||Trotter, Mark (author); Swain, David (author); Lamb, David (author)||Publication Date:||2009||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/10143||Abstract:||GPS tracking devices have been available as a research tool for many years, however, their use for livestock research has been limited by the high unit cost coupled with the requirement for adequate distribution amongst a herd or flock. In the last few years the development of low-cost, GPS chips has resulted in a growth of research activity, especially as researchers take advantage of the developments in GPS technology in allied industries, for example mobile phone telecommunications. Simple store-on-board systems have provided the main platform for GPS livestock tracking to date, however there are GPS and telemetry systems currently being developed that will, in the future provide real-time location data and integration with other sensors at a price appropriate for herd/flock-wide deployment in livestock industries.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||13th Annual Symposium on Precision Agriculture in Australasia, Armidale, Australia, 10th - 11th September, 2009||Conference Details:||13th Annual Symposium on Precision Agriculture in Australasia, Armidale, Australia, 10th - 11th September, 2009||Source of Publication:||Proceedings of the 13th Annual Symposium on Precision Agriculture in Australasia: GPS Livestock Tracking Workshop Papers & Abstracts, p. 64-64||Publisher:||Precision Agriculture Research Group, University of New England||Place of Publication:||Armidale, Australia||Field of Research (FOR):||070104 Agricultural Spatial Analysis and Modelling||HERDC Category Description:||E3 Extract of Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://www.une.edu.au/parg/documents/proceedings.pdf||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 256
