Machinery Show: Big Data

Tune in this week for another episode of the Machinery Show

The idea of Big Data can be confusing. On Technology Spotlight, Laurie Bedord investigates the value of all the data that can now be tracked on the farm, and how tech-savvy farmers are using the data to maximize their profits. 

On Steel Deals, Dave Mowitz travels to an aution in search of Challenger tractors. Now is the perfect time to shop for some used iron.

Then, on All Around the Farm, we visit a farmer who designed and built stairs for his combine to make getting in and out a snap.

On Ageless Iron, Dave travels to South Dakota to chat with a farmer about vintage John Deere Iron.
