Media Release: Allflex backs the next generation of Australian farmers

Media Release: 31 October 2017

The Australian agricultural industry is undergoing rapid technological advancement, with an array of new innovations available to farmers to assist them in driving their businesses forward.  From livestock and cropping precision technologies, integrated remote sensing networks, farm management software and apps, to handling, milking and feeding equipment, the amount of available options can be overwhelming.

The Farm Table’s Innovation Hub – Accelerate –  enables farmers to compare and contrast agricultural technologies and software on the market to aid future investment decisions.  Farmers can also browse articles and reports from across the country and the world to enable them to feel more confident about the options available to them.

Live on November 9, the Farm Table is being launched with the support of key sponsor, Allflex. Originally established to provide animal ID solutions for livestock producers, Allflex is now leading the way in technology innovation for livestock & animal management industries worldwide. Following the acquisition of SCR Dairy & Sure Petcare, Allflex is now delivering advanced animal monitoring and intelligence solutions, enabling smarter decision making through measuring the reproductive, health and well-being status of individual animals.

With a long-term commitment to the livestock industry, they are passionate about providing unique and innovative solutions, that will improve long-term profitability and sustainability.

Shane McManaway, CEO of Allflex stated that “Airlie came to our attention as a finalist for the 2017 Zanda McDonald Award, which is run as part of the Platinum Primary Producers Group (PPP).” Allflex recognises Airlie as one of the up and coming leaders in Australasian Agriculture; “Airlie is bright, passionate, driven and innovative, displaying a dedication to the growth and sustainability of the industry,” Shane said.  “We’re proud to support Airlie in her launch of the new Farm Table, which we believe will be a great platform to assist the development of this and the future generations of Australian farmers.”
