    Bringing technology to the farm

    I live on a family farm in central Illinois. We farm about 1000 acres of corn/soybeans. Not a huge farm but we get the job done. Ever since I was very young I have loved computers and pretty much anything in technology. I have been trying to bring more and more technology onto our farm, Including Wifi on our grain leg that stretches out to all of are fields. This means you have internet access anywhere in the field. Also I have added a few IP cameras so you anyone can check up on the farm. There is one on our 75ft grain leg giving an overview of the farm, a cow cam to watch our cows, pit cam to see if we are hauling corn, and a dryer cam to make sure the dryer is up and running. Feel free to check all this out and more at our farm website here [url]www.albinobrowncow.com[/url]

    ajshaww:
    What product(s) did you use to push the wifi signal all the way out to your fields from the grain leg?

    It's raining...again, so I'm killin time...again, and finally noticed Alex's thread. Click on his website link it's pretty cool, neat pics, and video's. I like the video where he has the camara mounted on the planter marker.

    Technology has sure changed since I bought my first Apple IIE back in 1983, I think I payed like 3 or 4 grand for it.

    As I've understood you want to get everything possible from modern technologies. Nowadays you can get more convenient look from the space.
