PDS Quantifying and demonstrating the management benefits enabled through NLIS technology - Central Queensland

Members of the Biloela CQ BEEF group undertook a comprehensive business and situation analyses to identify opportunities for improvement in their businesses. The group consisted of nine small to medium sized beef businesses, which included breeding, finishing and trading enterprises. A common theme from the business analysis was the need to increase turnover, and as a result a range of options and strategies were developed. 

The key drivers to be assessed in this Producer Demonstration Site (PDS) included: 

1.animal reproductive and growth performance; 

2.performance of specific breeds and individual animals within the herd; and 

3.the ability to predict which animals were unlikely to meet market specifications. 

 This PDS aimed to quantify the benefits of adopting NLIS as a tool to improve herd management and profitability. It also aimed to demonstrate to producers in the Fitzroy catchment how this technology could be practically integrated into a commercial beef enterprise.
