No need to walk all the way back to the barn to turn the fence off to fix it (nor to "grin and bear it" while you fix it); just a send a text and in a few seconds the fence will be safe to work on.

    BeetClock

    BeetClock

    BeetClock is an app for the Android mobile operating system which allows farmers to easily keep track of the labor and equipment hours they invest in each crop. I developed this app in order to quickly record work times while in the field. Tracking the time that goes into each crop can help you determine which crops are profitable. The app can send work reports as spreadsheets to your email inbox. It also integrates with the NOFA Enterprise Analysis Workbook developed by Richard Wiswall (author of the Organic Farmers Business Handbook), helping users create a whole farm budget.
