Despite having the benefits of technology to research livestock prices each fall, we still found ourselves spending a lot of time manually searching through auction house sale prices, calling neighboring ranchers, and reaching out to our personal network of contacts to determine the current market price and speculate on the best time to sell cattle.
It is a time consuming and inefficient process, and we wanted a better way for us, and the next generation, to utilize modern technology in the future to market and research agriculture products more efficiently, and to get back to the day-to-day activities of ranching.
When we started looking into possible markets for an app to help ranchers sell their cattle, we realized that the entire agricultural industry was underserved.
The benefits of a digital portal to provide farmers and ranchers with easy access to review markets and news, buy and sell equipment and land, and collaborate with others in the same industry, were enormous.
That realization was when the concept for BusinessWideView was created, and the work began to develop an app to bridge the gap and act as a “one stop shop” for agricultural content.
