Scope Reporting and Emissions

CERES TAG's innovative technology plays a pivotal role in enabling comprehensive emissions reporting across Scope 1, 2, and 3 categories.

For Scope 1 emissions, directly related to on-farm activities, CERES TAG data provides detailed insights into livestock behaviour and management practices, helping identify and reduce methane emissions through optimized feeding strategies and herd health management.

In terms of Scope 2 emissions, which involve indirect emissions from the energy purchased and used by the farms, insights gained from CERES TAG can guide energy-efficient practices by scheduling operations during off-peak hours and improving overall resource management.

Lastly, for Scope 3 emissions, which include all other indirect emissions within a company's supply chain, CERES TAG's data assists in monitoring the supply chain's carbon footprint.

By analyzing data including feed sourcing and other associated activities, CERES TAG enables stakeholders to implement more sustainable practices, reducing environmental impact and enhancing sustainability reporting accuracy. This holistic approach to emissions tracking and management underscores CERES TAG's commitment to environmental stewardship and its crucial role in supporting the agriculture sector's transition towards more sustainable operations.

Unlocking Holistic Pasture Management

Combining CERES TAG's detailed animal data with other technological data sources enables multi-dimensional analysis of animal health and behaviour in relation to their environment.

Some examples of how utilising technologies alongside CERES TAG can provide exponential value:

Satellite pasture mapping can reveal pasture health and biomass, allowing for informed grazing management that is complemented by CERES TAG's real-time livestock tracking.
In-paddock weighing systems can work alongside CERES TAG’s Pasture Feed Intake algorithms to monitor and optimise dry-matter feed intake to weight gain, and better estimate methane emissions.

Water point monitors, when synced with CERES TAG data, ensure that animals have adequate access to water sources, optimising water resource management.

Weather data can help predict and mitigate the impact of adverse weather conditions on animals and pasture quality, facilitating proactive management decisions.
This holistic approach not only enhances operational efficiency and sustainability but also supports the well-being of livestock and wildlife, illustrating the profound impact of technology in transforming traditional practices into smart, data-driven operations.

Pasture Feed Intake

CERES TAG's groundbreaking Pasture Feed Intake (PFI) technology is shedding new light on how we evaluate and select livestock for breeding.

PFI offers insights into cattle grazing efficiency, challenging traditional metrics of livestock performance and paving the way for improved genetic and land use optimisation.

Measuring Efficiency

PFI introduces individual pasture intake measurements, which have unveiled a more complex and informative picture of forage efficiency. Despite all animals grazing under the same conditions, substantial variations in pasture consumption among individual animals can be observed.

By capturing both the inputs (pasture intake) and the outputs (weight gain or milk production) for each animal, producers can now assess the feed efficiency of individual cattle - the amount of pasture each animal requires for a unit of production.

Implications for Productivity and Sustainability

Optimising Land Use

By identifying the most feed-efficient cattle, farmers can optimise land use, potentially increasing stocking rates or allowing pastures to rest without sacrificing output. This capability to more effectively manage resources underscores the importance of integrating feed efficiency into livestock selection criteria.

Reducing Methane Emissions

Feed efficiency also has profound implications for sustainability, particularly in reducing methane emissions—a significant concern in livestock farming. Animals that convert feed to weight more efficiently produce less methane per kilogram of weight gain. For instance, Ben generated 40-70% more methane than Carlos and Diego for each kilogram of weight gained, highlighting the environmental benefits of selecting for feed efficiency.
