Redhill Farm (Luke Bowman)

Redhill is a 2,400-hectare property located in Barraba, a town 90 kilometres north of Tamworth, New South Wales. Redhill primarily runs 600-700 breading cows.

Water sensors have been installed on 8 tanks and 50 troughs across the property. Installing a device like a water sensor can increase efficiencies and eliminate the need for daily water checks.

The focus for installing these sensors was to efficiently manage the water across the property.
