CalfWatch – developing a system to remotely monitor calving in northern Australia.

Calf loss in northern Australian beef herds is a major problem confronting the productivity of business operations. In this BeefConnect webinar, join Tim Schatz (Principal Livestock Research Officer – NT Department of Primary Industries & Resources) when he discusses the CalfWatch project which is being conducted near Katherine, NT. The focus of the CalfWatch project is to develop a system to remotely monitor calving under extensive conditions and then use it to investigate the causes of calf loss which costs the northern beef industry more than $54 million annually. During the presentation, Tim will discuss the findings and results of a 200 cow herd in a 2,215 hectare paddock that formed part of the study. A question and answer session will follow Tim’s presentation where you can ask your questions.
Register for this BeefConnect webinar and join the team from Northern Territory when they discuss CalfWatch in more detail.
