A Hitachi Processing Intelligence system collects all data from differing systems installed at Binginbar Farms, Gollan, helping to manage the farming and feedlotting enterprises run by the Simpson family.

These include water, weather and soil measurements together with data collected on every single lamb introduced to the property.

Nathan Simpson said one of the big influences on the performance of stock in the feedlot was climatic conditions.

“We have done multiple trials to ascertain best practice in feed ration ingredients, and the varying intake and conversion ratios on weather conditions,” he said.

“We suspect weather conditions influence performance ratios and now weather stations installed should confirm or deny this.”
