Case isobus question

Hello have a case Pune with 700 pro screen running isobus for lemken drill, screen has section control available but needs a gps feed to control it, so how do I connect to my trimble fmx screen to give gps output feed?
 
I think, but don't hold me too it you can do it through the db9 connector on the back of the pro 700. Would need a cable from the fmx to pro 700 to transmit NMEA signal. Then go toolbox>GPS and set to either rs232A or rs232B

I’ve found the pro700 to be very unhelpful with all this stuff, I wasn’t trying to do what you are saying but after months of trying I found out it was impossible to export any signal from the 700, and the unlock codes are ridiculous! I’ve got my drill on the 700 screen along with my maps now, that was the only way I could get it to work in the end
 
This is correct, you can't export a GPS signal from a pro 700. I assume you are running an accuguide guidance system? If so signal can be sent from the NAV diagnostic connector

Yes it’s got accuguide, I tried a few things, can’t remember if I did that but it’s sorted now anyway, all on the 700 and it works, I think the 700 has had its day personally, hopefully they will role out the magnum cab to the Puma before I want to upgrade again!
 
Yes the processing power of the 700 is dated, one thing you have to remember when running TC on that screen is to delete un used data etc to keep it running sweet. I think the best way to go VR or SC with that system is to feed signal to the implements own control box far more user friendly

Do you know the quickest way to delete stuff off there, I think I'm doing it but it's a painfully slow experience! Keeps saying task full too, I don't want to delete field's and A-B lines so I'm cautious to go deleting any and everything
 

Rejuvenating swards: Which option is best?

Written by Brian McDonnell

Maintaining grass quality during mid-season grazing is important. Farmers can maintain quality by entering ideal grazing covers of 1,300 – 1,500kg DM/ha, and grazing down to a residual of 4cm every rotation.

If you are now in a situation where cows are not cleaning out paddocks as well as they should be, leading to the development of steamy grass within the sward, here are some options.

Common options for rejuvenating swards include:

  1. Take a silage cut, probably into bales, remove the material and start again with the aftermath...
