Farm reporting software company Trev has released a product tailored for sheep, beef and deer farmers.

Trev, which has a background in dairy, provides farmers with a software tool to build and control their own farm database, providing insights into the business.

Information can be shared across a farming operation, with off-farm advisors or on other platforms, such as financial software providers, processors or organisations that determine a farm’s licence to operate.

Modules for the drystock application include paddock-level reporting, liveweights, supplementary feed, general management and more. 

Farmers are guided through a weekly reporting framework that the company said takes less than 10 minutes a week to complete. 

Trev then scrutinises, structures and stores the information captured, displaying it back to the farmer instantly to analyse in a range of templated and customisable dashboards (example below).

Trev CEO and founder Scott Townshend said farmers, regardless of sector, are facing similar challenges to get the most out of their operation, whether that’s from a productivity or compliance standpoint. 

“We’ve been hearing from many sheep and beef operators for quite some time that, like their dairy counterparts, there was a need for a simple reporting tool to help with on-farm and business decisions so we’re delighted to be able to front up with a solution.” 

This will be the first time that some in this sector have access to a practical tool with benchmarking capability, Townshend said.

“Dairy farmers have long benefited from the daily validation of a milk tanker docket. We’ve designed Trev’s new livestock offering to help close some of that gap by providing confidence and visibility of how things are tracking on a weekly basis, ultimately giving farmers a better lay of the land.”
