harvest 2012..... continued

Been chasing the different machinery around the farm when the occasion crops up (lol pun intended!!). Still have more in the can, not yet worked on, but there only so many hours in a day. Looks like harvest  will be mostly at winding up in the district over the next week or so. Its been a good run with not all that many hassles here this year. And that makes for a happier husband

Today's Farmer needs to be technology savvy. Not only in bigger, more efficient machinery, but also in computer know how. More and more implements are guided by GPS with accuracy of just 2.5 centimetres. Driving hands free is becoming more the norm. Farmers have had to learn and adapt to keep up with updated farming systems. Harvest 2012.
