Dairy farmers: Nick and Simone Renyard
Region: Western Victoria
Western Victorian dairy farmer Nick Renyard is making better use of his time on the farm thanks to DataGene’s HerdData mobile phone app.
Nick is using the app to record information about his herd out in the paddock and in the shed, when things happen, rather than having to write records on bits of paper and then enter data into the office computer at the end of the day.
Nick downloaded the HerdData app recently after his wife Simone prompted him to have a look at what it could do. As chair of WestVic Dairy, Simone had heard about the app and spoken to a number of farmers who had used it.
The Renyards milk 530 cows at Curdievale near Timboon in Western Victoria. The herd is made up of Holsteins and a number of Aussie Red crosses and calves from April through to June. CLICK HERE TO READ MORE
