Drones or Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) are everywhere! There is talk about using drones to do almost everything… from delivering parcels to inspecting assess and infrastructure .

What does this technology mean for graziers and how they manage their properties and livestock?

In this exciting webinar Josh Keegan (Director and CEO of the World Drone Challenge) will provide his insights into how drone research and technology can be used on properties to do everything from inspect water infrastructure (troughs and dams), to monitoring invasive pest species and crop health, to tracking and monitoring livestock.

Josh wears a couple of hats as both the Owner and Director of Keegan Consulting Group and also the Director and CEO of the World Drone Challenge.

He has given talks on the future of drones in cities at the Asia Pacific Cities Summit and the Audacious Ideas Festival in 2015 on ‘How to handle the coming drone invasion’.

Josh is currently working with aviation experts and CASA as part of the World Drone Challenge to create a new global competition placing Australia at the forefront of drone technology.

The Potrero de San Luis is a breathtakingly beautiful property with sweeping views in every direction.

About Land & Livestock Interntional, Inc.

Land and Livestock International, Inc. is a leading agribusiness management firm providing a complete line of services to the range livestock industry. We believe that private property is the foundation of America. Private property and free markets go hand in hand—without property there is no freedom. We also believe that free markets, not government intervention, hold the key to natural resource conservation and environmental preservation. No government bureaucrat can (or will) understand and treat the land with as much respect as its owner. The bureaucrat simply does not have the same motives as does the owner of a capital interest in the property. Our specialty is the working livestock ranch simply because there are so many very good reasons for owning such a property. We provide educational, management and consulting services with a focus on ecologically and financially sustainable land management that will enhance natural processes (water and mineral cycles, energy flow and community dynamics) while enhancing profits and steadily building wealth.
