Ky Valley Dairy Group is one of Australia’s largest family-owned dairy businesses supplying innovative fresh milk products to the Asia Pacific region through a secure supply chain from feed to final product. Insightful Systems were contracted to develop an automated solution to manage the process of weighing heifers at their feedlot. We developed a custom app that integrated with an existing RFID tag reader and the weighing unit, communicating directly to FileMaker via serial cable. The new FileMaker database provides the following key features:

  • Identify animal via RFID ear tags as they enter the cattle crush 
  • Record current weight of animal
  • Display history of animal weight vs target weight
  • Reporting tools allow comparison of current weight vs target weight across selected cows or the entire herd

Automated workflow that identifies cow, weighs cow and records information directly in a database.

Insightful Systems develop database solutions for clients in Australia and overseas across a broad range of industries – from manufacturing to professional services and everything in between.
