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.
