I’m beginning to think this could be our gatekeeper replacement, can I import old gatekeeper records and cropping etc ?

Its a very tidy website but does it have nearly the amount of detail required for a complex contracting business such as yours? Stock etc?

im not sure how much I need all that complexity though, the simplicity here is the attraction

if I can export to excell then I can do all the clever stuff I like

does it have no input stock management at all ? all I really need is, delivery, pricing and balances @fieldmargin

That's great to hear. Keeping the app quick and easy to use is a big focus for us.

No gatekeeper record import at the moment although you can attach gatekeeper pdfs to your new jobs which would be a quicker way of getting in your existing records without having to retype information. For historic cropping we have the concept of farm years so you can record the cropping for each year and setting cropping for each year is very quick: just select the crop and then click the fields you want to have with that crop. You can also see the field's previous cropping to help plan rotation.

We have stayed away from stock recording because it is very difficult to get right. You just need someone to miss adding a delivery or using a slightly different amount than was on the job because they are using up what's in store and your stock levels end up out of whack.

We are always working to improve the app to be more useful though and are very open to feedback. Why not drop me an email at camilla@fieldmargin.com and we can discuss further?

stock control is certainly a challenge but critical for assurance and runnIng contract farming businesses

gatekeeper over complicates it though, I’m sure there could be far simpler ways to deal with it, would be happy to discuss as that’s about all that’s missing for a farm business like mine to be able to make the switch to what looks like a far superior set up in pretty much all other respects

Good to know. It's interesting to think about. The approach would probably have to be slightly different for a contracting business (presumably one central store with stock being used on jobs across lots of different farms) vs individual farms who only need to keep track of their own stock levels. Definitely worth having a chat about.

I run each farm as a separate business with its own delivery /invoice / stock balance

I don’t think it has to be complex - just simply a way to record delivery and then later add price to those deliveries - applications then draw against that balance that can be reported at any time

gatekeeper seriously over complicate this imo

could almost diy using your csv exports but would be a lot neater if it was all within the app

given stock innovatory is a assurance and hse and fire service requirement i think it’s essential really

How to mitigate heat stress in cattle

  • 57
  • 0


Written by John Swire

With temperatures forecast to rise above 25°C, cattle producers should be prepared to mitigate the negative effects of heat stress on their beef and dairy animals.

“Cattle are fairly comfortable when the ambient temperature is between 15°C and 25°C over the summer months but if the thermometer rises significantly, production performance will start to suffer,” warns Jacob Lakin from Azelis Animal Nutrition.

“This is because both a milk production and growing beef animal will start to divert energy away from production performance towards keeping cool. You’ll notice if a cow is struggling during a summer heatwave because she will start to salivate heavily and pant...
