Farm Forum 11 – The Integrated Digital Farm of the Future – Jeff Thurston

Technology is integrating our lives into a hopefully more simplified system. The farm is no exception to this new rule. Data from every sector of the farm can now be collected, stored, analyzed and distributed like no time before in history. With the advent of the data storage cloud and the increasing accessibility of high speed internet, utilizing that data for the benefit of your farm is becoming easier.
