The main objective of this review was to assess currently available technologies to be used in Australian Precision Livestock Farming (PLF) systems and the research and development (R&D) work required before these systems can be implemented. Commercially available hardware and software products were assessed and a literature review of current R&D was undertaken to capture emerging technologies. One of the main recommendations of the review was that the implementation of PLF systems within Australia should occur via a coordinated development and linking of existing hardware and software components. The main implementation barriers identified are data compatibility and transfer. In order to achieve these aims investment in (1) industry coordination, (2) awareness raising/training programs (3) effectively targeted R&D projects and in the (4) establishment of demonstration/research sites would be required.
