The future of drones in farming
Reese Mozer, CEO of American Robotics
This article describes a highly sophisticated use of drones that perform on their own, supplying information back to the farmer and even directly to farm equipment such as sprinklers. Somewhere between the toy drone and this automated utopia, lies the small farmer and the use of out of the box drones that can be easily set up to perform routine tasks.
If we look to the future, where automated drone systems are as common as tractors, we will see increased collaboration between technologies on the farm, further unleashing the benefits of precision agriculture. This will include teaming between automated drones and automated ground equipment, synthesizing aerial image data with ground sensors and weather data, developing a collaborative set of AI that will eventually mimic and improve upon the daily tasks of the farm.” More info...

Why Chickens Need Sunshine
Sunlight is essential for egg-laying poultry to stimulate their ovaries to release a yolk and begin the egg-laying process.
Chickens need a minimum of about 16 hours of light per day for optimal laying, ducks need about 14 hours and geese lay best with 10 hours of daylight.
Like humans, chickens need Vitamin D. And the best way to get Vitamin D is to spend time outside in the sun. That's one reason why chickens are good for your health! Spending time outside supervising your chickens' free-range time allows you both to get a nice dose of Vitamin D. More info...
