A company spokesperson: “ With Pasture Map you can take Geo tag photos in any location out in your fields by using the photo taking feature will then seamlessly link up with the Cloud when you get back into cell reception to record the GPS coordinates where you took that photo. Simply click on the paddock that you are grazing in, take a photo before when you are moving your cows into the field, record start height, your projected and height and grazing time as well as grass ratings and any notes that you want to take. Then when you move your cows out of the field, do the same thing in order to complete the grazing event. You can easily look at the grazing history of any of your paddocks simply by clicking in the paddock and viewing the gallery. Scroll through the photo history of what the grazing events were and what your grass looks like before and after grazing.”
It's absolutely amazing how technology has improved the accuracy in ranching and farming. Who would have predicted that the telephone would become this remote ranch monitoring device? To use some alliteration, farming by phone.
