4Tags have signed to distribute the world leading Ceres Tag smart ear tags. This follows the significant incentives offered by the NSW Govt of 50% subsidy for multiple regions through their “Farms of the Future” program - 4Tags will ship and sell as local stock in AUD to Australian producers. The Farms of the Future program has been designed to drive more Agtech adoption by NSW producers and thereby efficiency to be internationally competitive staying ahead of their neighbours, 4Tags could see the benefit that could be offered directly to the producer.
David Smith, chief executive officer of Ceres Tag, said, “We are pleased to be collaborating with such a high performing team as 4Tags who have a clear demonstrated ability to reach producers on the ground and help them access products they need in a timely fashion.”
Brad Dwyer at 4Tags said, “Ceres Tag has developed a sophisticated livestock monitoring system and producers deserve to have easy access to this critical information for their operations. We are pleased we could assist Ceres Tag and hope that the relationship grows to other geographic regions as well.”
He added, “Ceres Tag provides information 24 hours a day that has been vitally missing in the industry and with new drivers for sustainability, animal welfare, biosecurity and asset management, it is imperative that producers don’t delay any further and get into this data for improvement of their own operations and the industry as a whole”.
There is a limited number of tags initially available so those wanting to purchase will need to get in quick. Information on the Ceres tag range, the type of information able to be provided and any questions can be found through the 4Tags website.
Ceres Tag is in discussions with other global distributors as it continues to grow internationally.
