Tracking daily inputs and outputs and individual customer records and contacts are among functions of Curt Ahlemeier’s new software for custom harvesters. Called Cutters, it’s the first of several management programs he hopes to develop for his company, Farmcast, based in Sioux Falls, SD.

“Custom operators can use it on the go from their mobile phones, tablets or laptop computers as long as they have Web browsers and Internet access,” says Ahlemeier.

The software can track the amount, quality and types of forages harvested for each customer as well as expenses, equipment inventories, trucking, delivery dates, fuel consumption and more.

Members of U.S. Custom Harvesters, Inc., and Association of Canadian Harvesters, Inc., tested the program.

The cost is $79/month, but Ahlemeier is offering promotional pricing to Hay & Forage Grower readers and discounts for yearlong contracts. For details, call 877-515-1059 or visit
