Easier farm bookwork

Posted by Team at FarmIQ on 21/06/16 19:40

Southland farmer Megan Vande Sandt went looking for a new way of recording farm information and has found software that fits.

Megan and her husband Justin run a 240ha drystock and grazing operation on the outskirts of Mossburn in northern Southland, which includes grazing dairy heifers for 21 months as well as leasing out Jersey sires.

Like many farming partnerships they divvy up the duties, with Justin focusing more on running the day-to-day farming and Megan running the bookwork side of things, as well as doing seasonal work off the farm organising calf contracts. She makes sure the right information is being recorded for any farm activity or event.

Sheep and beef farmer Marcus Edge has found a quick and easy way to present the right information for farm assurance and compliance audits.

He has changed his farm recording this past year, and the key has been using online farm management software with a mobile phone app.
