Abstract: This study reveals the potential for GPS tracking in the grazing industry. By monitoring the locations and movement of livestock, times of peak grazing activity can be identified and the can in turn produce maps of preferred grazing areas. Eventually these data may be used to produce maps of pasture utilisation and provide site specific fertiliser recommendations for the grazing industry.
