Abstract: There is a need for beef businesses to regularly collect and analyse data about cattle and pasture performance, to benchmark and improve business performance, to set and adjust stocking rates, to implement supplementation programs and to plan long-term carrying capacities. High costs of mustering; weather conditions; and lack of labour, infrastructure and on-farm skills can prevent timely weighing of cattle or measurements of pasture. The Precision Pastoral Management System (PPMS) seeks to automate these tasks and deliver the results to the manager’s computer. Industry consultation revealed support for the concept, and development began in 2011 by the CRC for Remote Economic Participation. To minimise adoption barriers, beef producers are engaged in development and trialling. While commercialisation of the PPMS is still some years away, the project team’s experiences may assist other researchers to develop technology products for beef producers in remote Australia.
