||WO||WO/2014/113842 - METHODS FOR ESTIMATING BIRTHING DATA FOR AN ANIMAL||31.07.2014||
||PCT/AU2014/000041||PRECISION PASTORAL PTY LTD||DRIVER, Timothy Kenneth|
The present invention provides methods for the estimation of birthing data (such as birthing date and birthing weight) by consideration of a mother animal's weight over an expected birthing period. The method comprises the steps of: measuring or providing the weight of the mother animal at intervals over an expected birthing period to provide a series of dated weight records, estimating the underlying weight of the mother animal over the expected birthing period from the series of dated weight records, and identifying a significant weight drop of the mother animal by reference to the estimated underlying weight, wherein the estimated birthing date is on or before the date of the significant weight drop. The methods are particularly useful in animals associated with production, such as cattle.

||PCT/AU2014/000031||VERTICAL FARM SYSTEMS PTY LTD||LESLIE, Michael, John|
A plant cultivation installation includes a number of plant growth solution conduits disposed between opposed support members. Light assemblies are located between the opposed support members for illuminating plants growing from the plant growth solution. Each light assembly includes an elongate and heat conductive support structure. One or more elongate panel assemblies, each having an electrical circuit and LED light source are coupled to each support structure. Heat is dissipated from the panels to the support structure during use. Each panel includes an electrical circuit having at least one electrical connector disposed at one of its ends that is interconnected with an adjacent panel. Ends of the light assemblies are received into corresponding engagement formations of the opposed support members to thereby provide mechanical and electrical coupling to the light assemblies. In the event of an LED failing the associated light assembly can be quickly uninstalled, the affected panel replaced with a functional panel and the restored light assembly reinstalled.
