👋🏼 Hello, it’s time for a proper introduction! I’m Anna Marie, the drone pilot behind Flyover Intel. I have big dreams for this little company and am looking forward to sharing drone footage and experiences along the way. ⠀ ⠀ 🐮 ⠀ My life revolves around cattle. From running a cow/calf herd with mom, to working as an analyst in the beef industry as well as making leather goods like belts and Yeti koozies, I enjoy being a part of the cattle industry and constantly learning from my peers. ⠀ ⠀ 🌎 ⠀ I love to travel and have lived abroad in Argentina and Brazil. I’m always looking for new places to explore so leave a recommendation in the comments! ⠀ ⠀ 🚁 ⠀ I purchased my first drone in 2016 and received my FAA drone pilot certification shortly after. Using technology to improve agricultural efficiencies has always fascinated me and I have been able to show farmers and ranchers a new and useful perspective with drone images that help them solve production challenges. Drones quickly highlight how natural resources and ag production can either flow together to produce good yields or conflict in areas that perform below expectations and need an improved management strategy. ⠀ ⠀ 👋🏼 ⠀ Please share a little bit about yourself or ag operation in the comments! Thank you for following Flyover Intel and let me know if you have any questions about drones! ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #introductions #aglife #ranchlife #agdaily #farm365 #cattletales #farmher #womeninag #womenintech #eatbeef #leathergoods #coloradogirl #womenwhodrone #bigdata #dronepilot #djiglobal #dronetech #dronelife #dronesaregood

We vaccinate and tag our cattle every year. Although, branding is still a huge practice in other places, our operation is small enough that cattle are easy to keep track of. My step dad writes the ear tag number based on the calves mom and that’s how he keeps track of pairs. We load them into our chute and the tag is done in a couple of seconds, along with the vaccinations- all like a regular shot or ear piercing. Because our herd is small, it’s easier to do a lot of things- we don’t use horses(although I’d love to) and they are bucket trained so roping isn’t necessary,they come at the sound of bucket. Every operation differs, and larger operations have to use other practices to be able to manage their herd safely and efficiently so stress isn’t caused to the animals. I love vaccination/ear tag day! #beef #beefadvocate #eatbeef #beefitswhatsfordinner #agdaily
