Why Register?

Site registration is free and only takes a few minutes. By registering your feedlot you will receive:

  • Twice daily, seven-day forecasts of maximum heat load, accumulated heat load and weather specific to your location. This is of particular benefit to feedlots that are some distance from the closest major town, as the meteorological parameters that influence the HLI and the AHLU forecasts can vary significantly over relatively short distances.
  • Optional automated alert system to warn you of up-coming high heat load events by SMS or email.
  • The option to up-load and view meteorological data and calculated HLI and AHLUs from your own weather station.

To register a site, the following are required:

  • NFAS accreditation number
  • Site name
  • Name
  • Email address
  • (Optional) Mobile number
  • (Optional) Alert preferences

To register for the automated alert system, the AHLU and Risk Levels are also required. These may be calculated using the RAP Calculator.

After filling out the registration form, your information will be added to our secure forecast database and your site location added to our weather model. This may take 24 to 48 hours, longer if the request is sent over a weekend or public holiday. You will then be emailed a username and password. Once you have received these you can login to the registered users’ part of the site, where you can view your site specific heat load and weather forecasts information.

The first person to register a site is the default nominated CHLT site administrator. CHLT site administrators are able to view, add, update, and delete contact details and alert preferences of subscribers registered to the site.
