Checking and monitoring water was costing Isis Downs approximately $120,000 per annum, plus a full-time staff member. This prompted the Cochrane’s to look into available solutions, with trials of remote water monitoring sensors beginning in 2018.
Following a process of careful consideration, Farmbot Monitoring Solutions was decided upon, and has been a success on the property- so successful that there are plans in the pipe-line to grow the system’s capacity even further.
“The system has paid for itself within 12 months through fuel and labour savings and has improved worker satisfaction and animal welfare.“
