Remote farm management - the new standard for dairy production
2020 was a turning point for all spheres of business, and agricultural workers especially felt the changes. The population's demand for food has not decreased, and there are much fewer opportunities for doing business at the same level.
It is difficult for dairy farms to maintain production levels and it is almost impossible to develop due to the need for a physical presence of personnel on site. The following problems arise from the restrictions associated with the COVID-19 pandemic:
- It is necessary to ensure the safety of employees, which means to minimize the number of physical contacts.
- It is necessary to maintain the same level of production.
- It is difficult to invite a consultant to the farm to get advice.
- It is difficult to control the processes taking place on the farm.
Special attention should be paid to general uncertainty - it is unclear whether the situation will change for the better and when it will happen.
All of the above means that the agricultural sector needs fundamentally new solutions that will allow you to operate remotely and improve production efficiency.
