Romani Pastoral Company has partnered with Meat & Livestock Australia to test a range of on-farm solutions as part of MLA's ongoing work in the digital technology space. The project is part of MLA's Digital Livestock 4.0 pilot project, and an extension of a digital project being undertaken by Carwoola Pastoral Company (CPC) in cooperation with MLA.
These technologies will be on display on the Red Meat 2019 red meat producer tour at Romani's Windy Station at Quirindi. Windy Station is a large-scale mixed livestock and cropping business incorporating export crops, fodder crops, beef, Romani's operations will present new challenges for providers who will create solutions through digital technology to on-farm challenges.
At Windy Station, producers will hear how the learnings from the CPC pilot project are being rolled out with Romani to leverage learnings . Attendees will learn what is hype and what is now happening in digital livestock technology, including an update on on-ground and aerial autonomous systems deployed at CPC, what is happening now and what is planned next. Presentations will focus on leveraging value through technology throughout the red meat supply chain.
