Google Earth is a free and valuable tool which helps producers of any type and scale learn about many aspects of the land they are working with.

Join farmer and extension educator Steve Gabriel to learn the basic functions in the program and how you can measure distances for fencing, estimate acreage and design paddocks, dig into USDA NRCS soils data, upload detailed contour maps, and plan for the coming season by learning a few simple tools and tricks. Students will receive some follow up information and steps to start working on their own farm plan.
