The general session of the annual Computers On The Farm Conference began with introductions of
the Advisory Council. The participants introduced themselves and what type of computer they are
using. Approximately 90% of this years participants are IBM users. Nearly 1/3 have e-mail and
Internet access. However, everyone is curious & agree they must get to know their computer to
efficiently organize their farm records. Several people were enticed to the conference to learn more
on GPS & their computer. MIR also showed success among many farmers who are long-time users
of the program.
