From cropland to the calving pasture, drones offer options to add efficiency
The Cattle Business Weekly
Near Baker, Oregon, Duane Chandler of Chandler Herefords is using a ground drone as an extra set of eyes in the calving pasture, and even to herd cattle. Chandler, who admits to being a “gearhead,” built the one-of-a-kind drone himself by modifying a Traxxas brand E-Revo remote control 4×4 and adding a video system to it. The unit has a front camera and a back camera.
