SMART Farmer Podcast
U.S. Farmers & Ranchers Alliance (USFRA) has partnered with AgWired for a SMART Farmer podcast. It features interviews with USFRA farmer leaders who use data and technology to be more sustainable and to help build a smarter version of the American farm and ranch.
In this first episode, USFRA CEO Randy Krotz talks about how people can relate to the SMART Farm concept – just like a smart phone or a smart home. Then we visit with Katie Brenny from the recent Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade Show to find out how she and her husband use the latest technology to produce beef more sustainably on their operation in Minnesota.

Our second episode features Maryland grain farmer Chip Bowling, vice chairman of the U.S. Farmers and Ranchers Alliance who was recently in Panama with the U.S. Grains Council. He talks about his family farm, which is located almost in the shadow of the DC beltway, and how he uses the latest innovation and technology to be more sustainable so his operation will stay in his family.
