Keeping an eye on water

Remote water monitoring products are paying off for producers on large properties by allowing them to idenitfy leakages and stock watering issues early.

Wildeye managing director Kieran Coupe, said the four core products used by sheep producers included rain gauges, water level sensors for tanks servicing stock, water meter monitors and cameras focused on water levels in stock troughs.

Using the remote technology gives producing peace of mind when they have multiple properties, or need to travel long distances to check watering points, Mr Coupe said. A monitoring product typically costs between $1000 and $1500 for each system, but most pay for themselves within 12 months.
