    Smarter Farming

    If you had a tablet that could show you any piece of information about your farm, what would it be?

    The amount of pasture available for grazing now. The amount likely to be available in 3 months would be nice, but I reckon tht might be stretching the tablet's capabilities just a tad!

    A complete forecast of the weather for the next 28 days.

    Nah! Complete waste of the tablet's time. We know what the weather will be like for the next 28 days: sometimes it will be wet; sometimes it will be fine; sometimes it will be warm - and sometimes it will be cold.

    It would be better than the piece of string that I've got at the moment. I touch it every morning and if it's wet I know it has been raining. If it's moving from side to side I know that it's windy.

    Wot? Only two indicators on your piece pf string? If mine is rigid, I know it's frosty, and if it's furry I know it's snowing! Mind, I never gets called upon to display it's fourth state - well, almost never.

    I never go out and touch/look at mine if it's frosty or snowing. I find it ironic that I always have urgent office work to do on those days ! Maybe mine shows that sort of weather as well. Dunno.
