Linda Ceylor said she has cell reception on her organic dairy farm in Price County. It just depends on where you’re standing.
“Sometimes I’ll be having a conversation, even in my house where I have a booster, and if I move to the left or move to the right, somebody will say ‘wait, you broke up,'” she said. “Then I’ve got to straighten up and try to get back into the position.”
Ceylor said she uses the same cellular network for internet access on her computer. The connection is what she uses for everything from texting her cow breeder to searching Facebook Marketplace for a piece of equipment. She frequently checks data about her milk quality that her processor posts online and stays up to date on proposed changes to organic certification requirements.
