Farm camera for increased security and ease of calves

A small tech company based in Iowa reassures ag producers during the calf season.

Larry Shepherd, owner of Southern Iowa Technologies, says the Brownfield farm camera system will make calf breeding and calving for livestock producers a little easier.

“Camera can be installed in calf barns, pig barns, sheep barns, etc., and reclining chairs can be used to observe livestock from the basement,” says Shepherd. “It’s as cold as it used to be, but it was terrible outside. If you could see it live from a warm house, you wouldn’t want to wake up at 2am.”

The company also said it has increased the use of security cameras in a system that notifies farmers when someone pulls on a driveway while in the field.

“Some of the cameras we sell can actually be placed in the machine shed or set to show missing objects,” says Shepherd. “That is, if something is missing, such as 15 minutes or an hour, you can still be notified that way.”

He said the camera works with a Wi-Fi connection that stretches up to 3 miles from the house to the barn.

Brownfield interviewed Shepherd at the KIIC Farm Show and Cow Calf Conference in Otamua, Iowa.
