Learning from Carwoola: Digital Technologies for different rural environments

This Livestock Tech Talk series explores South Australia’s Red Meat and Wool sector, chatting with livestock producers, technology providers and more about how they can work with producers to strengthen their business to grow more prosperous regions. The series showcases success stories from the ground, and how they’ve benefited from changing their farm’s business model with the adoption of technology, infrastructure or best practice.

In this episode, we talk with Darren Price from Price Rural Management and former General Manager of Carwoola Pastoral Company. Darren has been involved with the Meat & Livestock Australia Digital Farm at Carwoola, NSW where over 200 digital devices have been deployed to compare different technology products. Darren discusses:
• what livestock technologies have been implemented on Carwoola
• the results of his economic investigation into implementing these different technologies in a commercial livestock enterprise
• which products best suit which rural environments.
