|Title:||Interrogation of GPS tracking data to determine spatial grazing preferences of livestock||Contributor(s):||Trotter, Mark (author); Lamb, David (author); Hinch, Geoffrey (author)||Publication Date:||2009||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/5442||Abstract:||Yield monitors linked with GPS have revolutionised the grains industry and been one of the key drivers behind the adoption of site specific land management. We suggest that GPS tracking of livestock can provide graziers with data which, when fully developed, may enable them to understand spatial variability in pasture utilisation by their livestock and potentially implement site specific management to account for biomass and nutrient removal and redistribution. This poster reports on an initial trial established to examine the potential of a GPS tracking system developed at the university of New England for determining the spatial variability in resource utilisation of pastures.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||13th Symposium on Precision Agriculture in Australasia, Armidale, Australia, 10th - 11th September 2009||Source of Publication:||Proceedings of the 13th Annual Symposium on Precision Agriculture in Australasia, p. 100-100||Publisher:||Precision Agriculture Research Group, University of New England||Place of Publication:||Armidale, Australia||Field of Research (FOR):||070203 Animal Management||HERDC Category Description:||E3 Extract of Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://www.une.edu.au/parg/documents/proceedings.pdf||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 221
