CQUniversity received $ 200,101 for research technologies to improve meat traceability and farm data collection.

The grant comes from the federal government’s traceability grant program for exporters and will develop and test items such as smart tags that track various aspects of the beef industry supply chain.

“This study examines how smart tag technology can be used in traceability by linking pre-operational gate management to processing results “he said.

” It includes a review of how smart tags can be used to identify disease and management issues, and a case study to inform how this data can be used for industry.

“Although disease has a commercial disadvantage in that it ultimately leads to a Sch laughing bodies lead, any incentive to improve the health and wellbeing of our animals can only be positive. “

” On-animal sensors, or smart tags, are an emerging technology and we are only just beginning to fully learn how to use them can benefit the red meat industry, “he said.

” We are already using sophisticated ear tags in the form of the NLIS, so this research can be used to improve and expand on a product that is already in use.

“Whether through the development of blockchain technology to support food safety, an app to track the harvest of kangaroo meat or a DNA database to combat illegal logging – these second round projects give Australian exporters a competitive advantage. “

Mark Trotter, Associate Professor at CQU said the development of digital infrastructures and tools for the agribusiness is a “really critical topic”. Smart tags aside, manufacturers would benefit from long-range Wi-Fi and cloud connectivity.

“These are tech jobs,” he said. “So we need really bright, young people to come into our industry to be able to host and support producers.”

Mr. Trotter said the grant was “a great way to celebrate and showcase anything Australian beef and Rockhampton is great “.
