Looking to run mobs between multiple paddocks....welcome to open gate! Make sure your device is on at least App version of 2.0.80 👍


How does it work?

The algorithm behind open gate takes mob DSE and total paddock area into consideration. This helps to calculate available Feed on Offer and remaining Grazing Days in each of the paddocks. 

Getting started with open gate:

  • First, we need to get your gates set up on the Portal. Here's how:
  1. Log into the Portal
  2. From the Farm Map, select the green Add in the top left 
  3. Under Infrastructure, select to add a Gate
  4. Use the '+' icon the click where the gate goes
  5. Complete the gate details and Save
  • When adding a gate you can select which paddocks to connect. The closest 2 paddocks will automatically be selected, but these can be changed.
  • You can also edit your existing gates which are not already connected to confirm which paddocks they link. See how to here
