TIA Animal Production Center manager James Hills said there are currently several projects underway. He said the $ 300,000 investment in TestLab benefited the TIA farm. Mr Hills said the technology installed as part of the test lab would be accessible during the open house. “We’re up and running with a lot of it and encourage our industry partners to join us on the field day to learn more and try out the on-farm technology we’ve installed,” a Mr. Hills said. Bradmillhouse, Elliott Farm Manager, FarmPulse’s Richard Gardner and experts in the field will talk about new smart farm technologies being tested or used in the industry. Additionally, a partnership between the University of Tasmania and the Government of Tasmania will provide $ 7.7 million to TIA’s Elliott Dairy Research Center. Related: $ 6.5 Million Research Partnership between the Tasman Institute of Agriculture and Dairy Australia Investment should be in place to test sustainable, manageable and accessible rural technologies on the farm. “The upgrades will allow TIA to continue to undertake valuable agricultural research, industrial development and education programs to boost the productivity and sustainability of Tasmania’s agricultural sector over the next decade,” said Mr. Hills.
