National FFA Convention Details
October 23, 2013 - The upcoming National FFA Convention is a great opportunity to learn about the latest innovations in precision agriculture. Our booth offers a hands-on approach to data management, apps, handheld computers, and a wide range of precision farming hardware. FFA advisors can select from a wide range of solutions, such as business management software, precision farming, GPS, livestock, and more. Our software solutions are bundled with lesson plans so that teaching in the classroom is simple and easy-to-do.

A change for this year is our booth listing in the show program. We will no longer be listed under the Farm Works brand; instead we’ll be listed as Trimble. This move will provide you a one-stop-shop for all your precision ag needs.

Advisors can also register to win a free EZ-Guide 500 lightbar system for their school. The winner will be selected at the end of the show and does not have to be present to win. Click here to register.

Montana Farmer Helping Other Farmers
October 18, 2013 - Mitch Konen of Fairfield, MT sells and services Farm Works Software, which is a program designed to help producers handle the paperwork associated with agriculture. It can track costs and markets and allow producers to build a ledger as detailed as they want. It also has the ability to map fields and flag points of interest in those fields.

Producers can record soil and yield data, crop input job operations, chemical applications, track water management and surface drainage, record livestock data, and print off dozens of customized reports.

“I can input every dime, nickel and penny and allocate it where I want – to equipment, acreage, people, an enterprise of some kind, or somewhere else,” Mitch said. “Then I can review that data and know my operational and enterprise costs right down to the exact acre and bushel.”
