Although Janice is pretty savvy with a computer, other members of the team were a little more cautious. They quickly realised just how simple Cloud Farmer was to use and discovered one program was able to do everything they required and more. Personal support was just a phone call or mouse click away.
With 850ha (effective) and a mix of cattle, sheep and goats, run on flats, moderate rolling country and steep high country, there’s a lot to keep track of. Janice and Marty have a deep commitment to the land and upgrading the farm infrastructure and environment. In 2015 Maranga were finalists in the Ahuwhenua Trophy, the BNZ Maori Excellence in Farming Award, and using Cloud Farmer is the next stage in a successful career of setting and achieving goals.
