Industry Accepted Data Standards
These Data Standards have been developed by the pastoral farming industry to support efficient data exchange across the industry. They are designed to be used by product owners, analysts, architects and developers in developing and/or re-aligning applications and integrations.
Organisations that aim to be accredited under the Farm Data Code of Practice should be aligning their systems to these data standards, and utilising these standards when developing integrations.
