We’ve talked a little bit about technology on this blog (here and here), but when I stumbled across this video featuring our own Illinois Corn Marketing Board member, Paul Jeschke, I just had to share.
The stereotypical farmer is a country bumpkin with less than a high school education, making a living doing physical labor and not really needing to use his head. Nothing could be further from the truth in today’s agriculture!
Farmers today must be computer scientists, crop scientists, water quality experts, chemists, stockbrokers, economic analysts, and so much more.
This video will show you some non-farm moms from Chicago whose minds are reeling from the vast amount of technological information they are receiving this day on the farm. You will be shocked too!
