Product Description

Saber Drafting

Is LIC Automation’s range of farm automation and sensor technologies that empower you to do what you do better.  Saber provides an extra pair of hands during peak drafting periods like mating and dry off.

Saber provides a range of farm automation modules that allow you to build a system that suits your farm. It can act as a standalone system or can connect together with Saber SCC and Saber Heat.

Drafting

Identification is carried out via an antenna at the draft gate using the cow’s RFID ear tag. Ear tags are located in the animal’s right ear, and unique to each cow.

It is also possible to add Saber SCC or Saber Heat to your System.

“Good facilities allow farmers to expand production and incomes and add to the asset value of the farm. They also lead to a better quality of life for the farm family by reducing the workload and the drudgery. In many cases, particularly on dairy farms, buildings pay for themselves over a 7-10 year period. This is especially true when capital grant and tax savings are available.”
