Carrying out efficient and productive grazing planning and management is crucial for sustainable production and to avoid economic losses resulting from errors such as overgrazing. A well-designed plan defines grazing circuits based on pasture growth rates, which vary according to the forage species, climate, and time of year.

With Auravant’s livestock module, you’ll be able to monitor your pastures through satellite images, record your herds, create paddocks in your fields, and plan grazing circuits in an organized and simple manner. This way, you’ll gain greater control and traceability regarding grazing management, occupation quantification, and rest periods.

What can you do with this new feature?       

  • Plan your grazing circuits.
  • Register herds according to your planning and monitor their productivity.
  • Identify the state of your pastures through satellite images.
  • Visualize and record entries and exits in a livestock spreadsheet.
  • Access a dashboard with all information related to plot occupation and rest times.
  • Download all recorded information in Excel format.
