LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Ranchers who want to monitor the condition of their pastures now have a mobile application to help them.
The University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension has released an app called GrassSnap to make the monitoring process easier. The new app allows ranchers to save key information about their pastures, along with a photo. The information can be quickly downloaded to a computer.
UNL Extension educator Bethany Johnston says it's important for ranchers to monitor the health of their pastures. Photos and other information may also be used to qualify for carbon credits or to comply with government conservation programs.
The app is free.
