The G Farm Ecosystem
The IDS G Farm ecosystem is the new age of smart farming. The ecosystem represents the sum of all controlled and monitored aspects of your entire production system and expresses all the information right in your palm. This technology not only allows producers to monitor their whole farm in real-time but allows farmers to make informed decisions about their enterprise.
This technology not only allows producers to monitor their whole farm in real-time but allows farmers to make informed decisions about their enterprise. The G Farms systems offer these functionalities through 4 key areas;
- Livestock Management
- Pastures and Paddocks
- Water Management and Security
The Ecosystem takes data from all these key areas and condenses it into a simple to understand dashboard. The GPS Tag monitors stock movement and allows constant feedback of animal locations and health status. Furthermore, animal movements and paddock utilization can be assessed. The data will allow the simple movement of animals into paddocks and asses the grazing utilization of the pasture based on satellite images as well as animal walking tracks. Gates can be open and shut remotely as well as water control to troughs in order to shift animals to various locations.
The animals and data events are controlled on an individual and mob base. This allows for full traceability of each animal. This data is will provide a significant improvement to production choices and provide any business a huge competitive advantage.
Asset traceability and management allows users to monitor stock of all on farm assets and trace movement items such as tractors. This coincides with assigning jobs to employees through the management system and tracking jobs in order to maximize efficiency and profitability on farm, remotely.
G Farm offers a diverse range of water management systems. Water level sensors, valves and cameras are all used to control all water movements on farm remotely as well as constantly maintain animal health and welfare standards. Through managing individual water assets such as dams, troughs, tanks and more, G farm can visualize water flow direction, water levels and whether water sources are on or off all from the user interface. The cameras allow animals to be assessed remotely individually or in mobs and check herd health. Cameras also provide surveillance as insurance on all aspects on farm.
The G Farm system is the future of remote farming. Whether you are an owner, manager or employee, the system offers a broad range of data which sets your farm on the path to more profitability, sustainability and efficiency. Whether you work from home or on farm, this system offers easy control of multiple on farm aspects which and provides a whole user interface which displays all the crucial data specific to your enterprise.
G Farm Management Suite
The IDS G-Farm management suite is the intuitive way of smart farming for the future. It is a thorough way of managing your production system to effectively achieve goals related to production, sustainability, profitability and output for you and your team. Time is money. That’s why IDS G-Farm is focused on developing a whole range of precision agricultural products which coincide in making farming, more profitable and streamlined, in real time.

From the start the farmer creates his own ecosystem, starting by adding their properties on a GIS-based map. The farmer can then place important infrastructure in the relevant positions, adding assets such as fences, paddocks and livestock onto the system to retain real-time information. With Communication through LoRA systems, the software works hand in hand with other components such as GPS livestock tags, UAV’s, weather stations, cameras, water management systems and other livestock management tools. All these aspects of the precision ag sector allow farming to be more efficient and affordable right from your fingertips.
The G Farm livestock management system incorporates GPS animal trackers, animal identification software and tools to effectively manage all aspects of your livestock. A tag placed on your sheep, goats or cattle, that will record their real-time movements and the ambient temperature, storing and visualizing all the data on your screen. This doesn’t only allow the user to track the current GPS fix of their animal or mobs but, allows you to gather much more crucial data about individual and group animal health and behaviour.
The Tracker, working in conjunction with the NLIS system, allows an animal to be identified anywhere on farm, via drone scanning or GPS fixes every hour through LoRa communications, to your online system. This allows the system to assess the animal’s health and status, identify and administer treatments without having to move or shift a whole mob. This is a vital aspect in improving an animal’s growth outcome and improving low stock stress handling techniques.
The IDS Smart sensors are used in conjunction with the Farm Management Suite, to visualise, analyse and control various on farm aspects. Through monitoring your livestock, in conjunction with the various smart sensors offered, it will allow you to automate your management of on farm water, mob and individual animal weighing in paddock, health status and improve low stock stress handling. The sensors are a crucial factor to your entire precision agricultural system as they will provide you with enough crucial data, to help you make informed decisions about your enterprise. In turn, creating a more profitable production margin.
Pasture & Paddock
IDS G FARM Animal tracker provides the farmer with an accurate heat map in areas that livestock have grazed, giving him visibility to manage the stocking density in accordance with DSE’s. The farmer can manage the total process of organizing livestock to make use of pastures. in accordance with the GFARM Animal Tracker, grazing management of animals on pasture and crops can be used, to ensure that rotational grazing strategies are in place by moving the animals from paddock to paddock without human intervention.
To help assess the correct times to move animals, the GPS trackers, along with the Satellite paddock dry matter assessment system, will calculate the amount of pasture available for the current stock and suggest when to move stock to the next paddock once they have finished grazing. This also helps update records and data as to how much paddock area is usable grazing area, how much quality feed there is for maintenance or growth phases of stock and if pasture or management of paddocks can be improved to optimize growth and production.
IDS G Farm has worked in conjunction with Farm Biosecurity to establish a detailed yet effective biosecurity plan within the system to allow you to protect your livestock and land against potential threats. The software provides a simple and easy plan to be designed which can be shared to employees and management to ensure clear policies and procedures are in place to ensure the longevity of your production system. The software in conjunction with various sensors and trackers used, will allow monitoring of movements on farm and keep track of any potential biosecurity risks.
GFARM Technology Sensors include sensors for Water Management, Weather Stations and Communication systems. Our sensors all work on the GFARM management system. The benefit of environmental monitoring of your property is to allow real time data on conditions which will affect your production system. With this visualized data, better and more accurate decision’s on farm can be made in order to have successful results. Paddock movements, weather forecasts and water management decisions are just some of the key aspects which will enable fast and accurate on farm decisions to better control the production environment.
The G Farm software manages all on farm assets, from fences, water troughs, gates, equipment, vehicles, buildings, medicine and more. This enables the farmer to fully manage stock of assets on farm and replenish them when needed. Furthermore, decisions can be made on finances, as well as each individual asset can be monitored. This gives a producer the full capability of managing their enterprise online, the future of smart farming. Monitoring of each individual assets can be done remotely with some assets such as gates being able to be maneuvered from the touch of a button.
With a full on farm management software, G Farm can also assign owners, managers and workers. With this functionality, tasks can be set, assigned and monitored through various sensors to establish efficiency and cost. However, more importantly this function allows policies and procedures to be established making sure that before tasks are undertaken, the correct OHS regulations are adhered to. The in Built OHS plan allows farmers to design an OHS policy which can be directed towards lower management and ensure the business stays viable.
