As modern farms become increasingly advanced, remote support is rapidly gaining popularity according to latest data from DeLaval, leading supplier of solutions that improve milking performance on farms. Connected farms not only reduce the need for physical visits from service technicians, but also from vets, nutritionists, and even financial advisors.
Recent installation data from DeLaval, over 2000 installations in the last 12 months, shows that remote farm control has repeatedly proven to increase both control and efficiency in farm management. As a result, more and more farmers are becoming aware of the benefits of remote consultations from external experts.
Farmers in need of specialist support and advice are no longer limited to relying on their local network of service people. They can now also consult veterinarians, nutritionists and financial advisors from further afield. Furthermore, when the farmer is away from the farm, the farm’s computer can also be accessed via a secure web-based connection.
“Remote farm connections enable us to support our farmer customers to a much greater extent than before. This kind of remote access provides us with the opportunity to support the farmer more rapidly and more accurately than before as we are no longer confined to actual visits if we require farm data to make a decision” says Shaul Tcherikover, Business Development Manager, Farm Management Support Systems, DeLaval International. “A remote farm connection allows farmers to give permission to our field technicians and other professionals to access the farm computer and provide aid, advice, and support”.
