An extra set of eyes

Ag Cam from Dakota Micro is a monitoring system specifically designed for farm and ranch uses. You can use the camera system to monitor the views from a piece of equipment or in an outbuilding. You can view the height of grain in the combine hopper or monitor livestock in transit or in the barn, for example.

The Ag Cam cameras are waterproof and have an infrared light array, allowing for visibility up to 35 ft. in complete darkness.

Monitors are available in 6-, 7- or 8-in. sizes. The standard system includes one camera and a 7-in. monitor for just under $1,000. Contact Dakota Micro, Dept. FIN, 8659 148th Ave. S.E., Cayuga, ND 58013, 866/462-4226, visit or, or circle 198.
