AGCO, a worldwide manufacturer and distributor of agricultural machinery and precision ag technology, has announced an investment in OPTIfarm, an emerging leader in precision livestock farming.

OPTIfarm uses proprietary software and an expert team to help farmers create the best environment for their animals. The system improves farm performance and helps meet key operational livestock targets, such as weight gain, improved feed conversion ratio and uniformity. The system also improves animal welfare by monitoring natural behavior to recommend the best possible conditions for livestock health, welfare and safety.

“Our investment in OPTIfarm aligns with our vision to deliver industry-leading smart farming solutions that improve our customers’ net farm income and address animal welfare,” said Eric Hansotia, AGCO’s Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We believe that advances in modern animal agriculture, like OPTIfarm, can help producers care for their animals and reduce environmental impact, while maximizing productivity.”

Video: This may be the roughest start of lambing season ever.?? | Vlog 677

Lambing has started... 8 days too soon.Which usually means we have issues. And boy... did we have issues.Had our first set of triplets, but two perhaps got stuck during delivery, and the third... well, lets just say I've NEVER seen this.Also had a ewe prolapse, which turned into more drama the following day.AND... my freshly cleaned barn had a blown water line, so back to clean out we went.
