Dairy Farming

Dairy and On-Farm Connectivity

Every dairy farm manager and worker understands the challenges that come with unreliable or patchy coverage. Whether you're working out in the paddocks making a simple phone call or engaging in more data-intensive tasks like precision agriculture, the frustration can be very real. A connected dairy farm with cutting-edge connectivity solutions can successfully address labour shortages, get the most from precision technology adoption, mitigate rising input costs, just to name a few! 

Automated milking sheds and the widespread use of sensors and AgriTech have transformed the way dairy farms operate. At Connected Farms, we understand the specific data and connectivity requirements of modern dairy farms, providing tailored connectivity solutions to enhance efficiency, productivity, and safety.

Connectivity Challenges Faced on Dairy Farms

Dairy farms often span vast and remote areas, posing significant connectivity challenges. Traditional communication methods may fall short in these environments, hindering data transfer and real-time monitoring. The need for reliable connectivity is particularly critical in managing automated dairy systems, irrigation systems, mob and pasture monitoring, and implementing precision dairy farming tools.
