Technology – Hype or Reality?
Manage episode 342710589 series 2932023
This month our focus is on technology and my guest is Dr Nicolas Lyons, who is Leader Dairy with the NSW DPI dairy team. Nico has had a career shaped by his involvement with dairy farm technology, both in research and on farm implementation.
Technology used on dairy farms and agriculture in general is ever evolving and, if suited to the farm and farmer’s business it can help improve on-farm productivity by making tasks easier and labour more efficient, providing the manager with information to help them make more effective and timely decisions in areas such as herd and pasture management. In this episode we touch on some of the technology developments within Australia in recent years and hear from Nico about his involvement with the International Precision Dairy Farming Association based in the Netherlands and his recent attendance at their conference in Vienna.
