Why should I automate my farm?
If you have ever been curious by farm automation technology, now is the time to investigate. Automation can give you back your lifestyle. Whether it be more time to do other jobs on farm, or more time with family and friends. Padman Automation can help you with all this and more.
Customers often tell us about how they are able to spend more time with their kids/grand children. By knowing their irrigation cycle was looked after and the re-assurance of a text message from their automation saying the change over had successfully happened, our customers are now able to irrigate without even needing to be on farm.
We create semi-automated systems that don't take the farmer out of the scenario, but instead help the farmer work smarter. Not HARDER! We would love to chat to you about how we could potentially help you save more time, water and labour costs. And if you meet the eligibility requirement for this grant you will only be forking out 1/3 of the costs, with every $1 you spent, $2 is funded by the Dept of Ag. In an effort to make the application process as simple as possible we are inviting our customers to book a phone consultation or farm visit with one of our automation specialists.
We are also able to offer our admin teams assistance to you to help fill out the application.
We can't imagine a better time to get into farm automation technology than now. Give our friendly team a call on 1800 254 594.
