For many years now, you have experienced the joys of running your own farm. But, as you may have experienced, it gets harder. You would have thought that the older you get, the more experience you gathered over the years would have made you smarter and more efficient in running your own agricultural business. Aye, that it has, but there’s that thing again. Age. It tends to catch up with you and the agri-business can be quite taxing on your physical abilities.
There is also the matter of security. It becomes a lot harder to manage your lot as you grow older. You and your spouse and even the few farm hands close to you are becoming more vulnerable. Solid security, private or state run is still physically very far from your location. But in the meantime, there are at least a few things here and there that you can do to modify how you run your farm and contribute towards self-sufficient land security.
Who would think that something as little as an automatic farm gate opener could do so much for you under these trying circumstances? If not that, then at least consider this a solid beginning then. You never need to creak your old bones inside and outside of your truck, trying to herd in your farm crowds if you will and manhandle the steering wheel at the same time. Zip, it is as simple as that. You can hoot and you can toot, and your farm hands get their herding work done.
Far or near, you can keep an eye on things while still in your truck. And while it’s well known that you may start to lose your memory at this age, please remember to close the gate behind you.
