Did you know in the developed world the average age of farmers is increasing? In the USA the average age is 55. That means a lot of farmers in the next 10 years will be retiring – and selling the farm because fewer people in those countries want to work on the land.
Farms are getting larger and need to increase scale to be profitable. But with fewer people available to work the land these farms will become more and more dependent on automated systems.
Agersens eShepherd (link) will be the only livestock automation system that will enable farmers to fence and move livestock – using their smartphone or tablet.
We are crowdfunding in March and need your support!
