Now is a great time to check your solar panels. Use a damp cloth to wipe them clean and ensure they're facing north. Check their surroundings and keep them unobstructed to help them work effectively.
We had an awesome time away at Fieldays last month. It was great to connect with our customers in person as well as other businesses in the agricultural sector.
"We put in 4 soil moisture and temp probes last year and pretty much paid for them with one decision. We are used to it getting dry in October but the probes told me it was quite a bit drier than normal and getting worse fast. We brought forward our planned store lamb sales by 2 weeks and this allowed us to generate a good return for these lambs. Two weeks later and they would've been worth $30 grand less. The original cost of the probes was repaid many times over!"
