This farm software system is great, I can transfer my diary herd records from my Smartphone to Farmwizard anywhere I want. I can even synchronise my information from the tractor seat. I have always found the PDA to be an essential part of running my dairy enterprise. However it has always required me to connect to a computer to transfer the data. Now with the Smartphone I don’t even need to do that.
