|Title:||PA Innovations in Livestock, Grazing Systems and Rangeland Management to Improve Landscape Productivity and Sustainability||Contributor(s):||Trotter, Mark (author)||Publication Date:||2013||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/14308||Abstract:||Innovative precision agriculture (PA) technologies are increasingly being used in the plant industries whilst similar techniques and opportunities have been slow to evolve in the grazing industries. The need for improved animal production efficiency is driving many producers to evaluate the PA technologies that could be applied in grazing systems, from site specific management (SSM) of fertiliser, objective pasture biomass measurement, individual animal production assessment and automatic livestock monitoring technologies (ALMS). This paper explores some of these, including SSM, ALMS, walk-over-weigh and remote automated drafting technologies in the context of their potential value for graziers seeking to implement them.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Agricultural Science, 25(1), p. 27-31||Publisher:||Australian Institute of Agricultural Science and Technology||Place of Publication:||Australia||ISSN:||1030-4614||Field of Research (FOR):||070104 Agricultural Spatial Analysis and Modelling||Socio-Economic Outcome Codes:||830399 Livestock Raising not elsewhere classified||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||http://search.informit.com.au/documentSummary;dn=410039721522825;res=IELHSS||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 234
