It’s always fun to learn something new, especially when it shows you good news! This year, that meant looking at the farm data differently, and what a great year to choose. While last year Deer Creek Farms had 100% hail damage, this year we are able to see what a great harvest looks like!
This is the farms first year using myJohnDeere and the JD Operations Center, but the data has been being collected since 2013 for seeding. Yes, that means for 4 years, I was slacking off on helping to get this working!
But hopefully this makes up for it! This year, my Dad handed me the data stick and said “go figure it out” after a brief visit to Green Valley Equipment in Morden, Manitoba. With a 3 hour investment his field data is now uploaded and available for analysis. He was particularly excited to look at his yield maps and how specific they were.
There is still plenty left to learn and explore, but for a 3 hour time investment seeing the extent of the information available and the impact it can have to farming operations it was time well spent!
If you would like to learn how to make Operations Center work on your farm message me, or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If there is enough interest we’ll look into doing a few clinics around the topic to help you get started!
