Mark Twain once said, “The difference between the right word and the almost-right word is the difference between a lightning bolt and a lightning bug.”
Many farmers and livestock producers have pretty much reached the same conclusion about the difference between having the right tool and a less-than-ideal one. Having tools and technology that work well for your operation can make your livestock enterprise more productive and profitable, as well as more efficient and, frankly, more enjoyable.
The tools and tips highlighted in the accompanying slideshow are just a few of the many that were presented during two recent grazing schools hosted by the Indiana Forage Council. Some are the result of recent technology or other developments while some have been around for a while — but you may not be aware of them. Some are old standbys, about which an occasional reminder never hurts.
Take a few moments to look through these tips and gadgets, and hopefully you will find something that will be a good fit for your livestock operation.
