Building apps for the grazing livestock industry

Wednesday 22 February 2017, 3:00pm
Biological Sciences Lecture Theatre (S003)

A symposium on the development of web-based apps designed to provide information about complex grazing systems was held on 22 February 2017.  Drawing on a broad range of expertise in livestock production, soils, pastures, data science, simulation and machine learning models the apps form a natural collection point to connect science with practice.

These are the presentations from that symposium:



James Rowe – The opportunity…



Julius van der Werf – The value of genetics, genomics and data analysis for Animal Science



Lewis Kahn – AskBill: Improving sheep productivity and wellbeing



Ian Johnson – Biophysical pasture simulation model



Yan Laurenson – Pasture infectivity



Saleh Shahinfar - Machine learning models for predicting wool growth and quality



Lu Hogan – Designing the user interface



Johan Boshoff – Architecture used for AskBill



David Faulkner – Commercialisation options



James Rowe – The opportunity … start now
