For many years people thought of farmers as being less intelligent than the general population. How many times did we see the picture of the farmer with the straw hat and dirty overalls, such poor fashion sense that he couldn’t be as intelligent as the more sophisticated urban folk. Today’s farmer is proving everyone wrong by adopting and using technology at extremely high rates. The question of whether farmers would adopt smartphones and tablets seems ridiculous at this point.
In this clip produced by Shaw TV Red Deer, Robert Saik of Saik’s Agritreks fame and Agritrend, discusses how the technology revolution has farmers becoming more productive than ever. Truly a great two minute video by Shaw and Mr. Saik!!!
