Wool production is a very important factor in the Australian economy, representing $3 billion in exports. Nevertheless, rising production costs and growing competition from manmade fibres necessitate increased attention to all aspects of productivity if the industry worldwide is to remain viable.
On–farm labour has been identified as a key constraint in the expansion of the West Australian sheep flock. Whilst there are a range of labour saving tools and technology systems on the market, information is required on how best to integrate these into a sheep enterprise, and which products are most suitable to specific sheep enterprises.
When determining the benefits of any technology, an acceptable pay-back period should be determined prior to investing in any new technologies. However, it is also important to consider other benefits that are difficult to value such as ‘peace of mind’ and reduction in error.
This video discusses 6 key technologies sheep producers can introduce into their sheep enterprise to optimise management practices by increasing the number of sheep run per labour unit and improving efficiency and productivity.
