Replacing the Notebook: Collaborative Development of Farm Management Software

In consultation with farmers and with the support of a commercial business partner, the project developed and commercialised a user-friendly but leading-edge livestock and farm management system incorporating palm computer technology to replace the paddock diary or notebook commonly used for recording information on farms. The product was targeted to small operators in the grazing, cropping and mixed farming industries.
