“From my own personal experience,” explains Shervin, “Farmdeck sensors notify me when my tank water level has dropped so that I know then that my tanks need filling. It also has the capability to take this a step further and when the tanks level drops a certain amount, it automatically turns the pump on to fill up the tank, and then switches off once it’s hit a certain level. This means that no more water runs are needed and that cattle don’t have to suffer going without water as the tanks will always be full.” The return on investment is huge because you’re not only saving thousands of litres of water, but your not having to move your cattle saving you time. By having this daily data at your fingertips, you can see how much water is consumed by your cattle per day and based on temperature.
What I’ve also noticed since putting a GPS tracker on my bull, he explains, is that he didn’t like to go into certain areas of my paddock to graze. While I thought there was enough feed there for him, there actually wasn’t because he didn’t like that specific feeds. The use cases for IoT solutions on-farm are extremely beneficial.
