Although ELMS is based on the latest science, the emphasis is on developing practical ways to deliver high levels of productivity at every key stage in the production cycle.
In most Australian livestock grazing enterprises, animals are consuming between 2 and 5 times more feed than is required for the amount of meat or wool that they produce. This represents a significant loss of efficiency and probably increases the cost of production.
The ELMS production management systems or ELMS protocols can be used individually or linked together to deliver a cumulative benefit in production and profit. These protocols are designed to improve efficiency and productivity at all stages of the Livestock Production Cycle.
What are the ELMS Protocols?
The ELMS protocols offer solutions for every step of the Livestock Production Cycle.
Increases conception rates, improves embryo quality and tightens your lambing or calving spread. When you improve your flushing programs, AI program rates, first service conception and reduce the number of empties – production figures will improve
ELMS Joining programs deliver higher calving/lambing percentages. A healthier dam gives birth to stronger, healthier progeny that hit the ground running and have a better developed immune system.
BIRTH AND EARLY LACTATION
It’s a simple equation – healthy livestock reduce losses and improve productivity. ELMS can help you improve marking rates, reduce pregnancy toxaemia and milk fever, and minimise the number of lazy calvers and lambers.
Weaner losses and health issues such as weight loss, pinkeye and scours can have a significant effect on profit. ELMS can help you improve weight gain and fibre production, enhance lifetime efficiency and minimise losses from disease and parasites.
ELMS scientifically precise feeding plans can increase growth rates, turnoff, wool growth and fibre tensile strength, as well as enable you to carry more stock, reduce parasite problems and control bloat, grass tetany and scours.
ELMS feedlotting protocols and capabilities can improve weight gains and meat quality, while reducing pinkeye, respiratory problems, scours, risk of grain poisoning as well as feed times and costs.
YARDING & TRANSPORT
Reduce shrinkage while improving carcass yield and meat quality with ELMS transport protocols including Travel and Yard pellets.
