I'm Andrew Klein, sensors guy, and I'm Smart Barn's owner. I'm a proud US Army Veteran, and I grew up farming with my dad, so I know what it's like to keep up with a large herd of hogs, and I worked on a large poultry farm for years, so I know how much work it is keeping up with everything. Farm stress is real, and if you’re farming nobody has to tell you that you’ve got a lot on your plate. If you’re not careful it’s easy to expend huge amounts of energy, worry and stress keeping up with everything.
What’s the market doing? How’s the hog barn? Did I take care of the books this month? Did I mail the payment? And don’t even get me started about the $%^& taxes!!! Some of us are even managing a farm, and a family on top of a job in town. It’s easy to get stretched thin and feel overworked, the last thing you need is more uncertainty to add to the stress.
Smart Barn was invented on the farm to help busy people like you keep up with everything, and reduce your stress without a bunch more complicated technology. Even though Smart Barn started on my dad’s farm, it isn’t just for hog farmers. We protect chicken barns, grain bins, greenhouses, poultry hatcheries, pheasant brooders, and even a primate research facility! If you’re farming, raising livestock, or you’re raising crops, produce or animals of any kind, then Smart Barn is here to help.
