VRI – the perfect system for water and effluent
One of the huge benefits of the Bauer VRI system is that both water and effluent applications have been considered. This is where Bauer’s design concepts vary somewhat from competitor products, as Bauer has equally considered both water and effluent applications. In addition, Bauer continues work to extend the system within the current operating framework, in order to adapt it to customers’ needs all over the world.
Also, while VRI for pasture is quite atypical, it turns out to be ideal for the Gibsons, and Waituna Dairies, as well as many other New Zealand farmers.
“I find the system a very useful tool for current operations, allowing the flexibility to plan for future economic resource management. While classical usage on our site is based on pasture, in the future, cropping, cut and carry, and indoor housing will become more common. It is good to have a system which we know will also fit alternative management models. Furthermore we are currently considering the use of EM mapping, a feature which is already an integral part of SmartRain, in order to develop prescriptions based on soil profiles.”
