Little Video Shoot

This year we purchased a couple of FireFly ProSlab 155 harvesters that automagically (I know that’s not a word but I just like it!) stack the grass on pallets. We really like them so far and are doing an excellent job for us.

A couple of weeks ago FireFly and one of their partners, National Instruments, wanted to come out and video the harvesters working and take some photos. I believe National Instruments makes the electronics for the harvester and they are working together to make a short marketing video about their products. They gave us some of the video footage for us to see and play with and so we took some photos and put them together with their video to make a little video ourselves. Love the drone footage they gave us to use!! Amazing how things look from above! They used this DJI Phantom 3 Professional drone while they were here at our farm. Pretty sweet system.

So here’s our little video of the harvesters working.

Lawn Measuring Tool

There’s a tool from Sod Solutions that they’ve made available to the public for measuring your lawn that we wanted to link to and let you know about. Great little tool! You can look up your address and then use the website to measure your lawn or really whatever geographic area you want to measure.

We’ve been using it to measure our fields and it’s just kind of fun to play with. It’s a great little tool and we appreciate Sod Solutions for putting it together and letting anyone use it. The link below is to their blog where they explain how it works and then from their blog you can click on the link to the measuring tool. Once at the actual website of the area calculator tool you can bookmark it for later use. Enjoy!
