The AgSoft Solutions team know it’s been a tough season with the drought or most and floods in the depth south. While the rain has come for most (but not all), grass and crop growth is going to take a while to fully rebuild. This winter is going to be tight for feed and this makes an accurate, deliverable feed plan even more important.
We can already see activity in Pasture Coach as more users return to weekly farm walks. This is a good thing but also means people have got to get their software operating again. The most common issue is a forgotten password. The solution being to go to the “sign on” page and use the “Click here” under the forgotten password section.
We have some good news for users of Pasture Coach.
A quick reminder. If you are doing your first farm walk for a while the pasture growth rates will not make sense. So enter “N” for No as you enter the walk. Your first meaningful growth rate will come on your next walk.
While it might be tough going out there success will come from measuring and planning.
Stay strong from the AgSoft Solutions Team, love your feedback please keep it coming...
