Gotta hand it to Dakota Micro, Inc this camera has lived in fertilizer for 10 years in my air cart. Just took it off to test it, still works like new even as the body gets corroded away.

I do custom combining throughout the upper Midwest and got this AgCam system to watch behind my equipment when I was traveling down the highway, but I have found SO many other uses for it. I also have the wireless add on. So I can put a camera at the end of the combine auger and see the inside of the hopper. I am thinking of getting another monitor and receiving unit, and then my grain cart operator would be able to see the inside of the cart too. I have found a million uses for the system; I really like its versatility.

I have been using your AgCam system for the past 6 months. I have moved it between many machines and to monitor my cattle. The wireless was an exceptional addition allowing me to monitor my cattle from the house, and I also used it once to catch an employee stealing gas. With calving season coming up soon, I plan to get the new 4 camera display adapter to reduce trips to the barn.

This is the second year using our AgCam system; this year, we added a wireless system to get video from the combine hoppers to the grain cart. We have increased safety and efficiency without a doubt. This equipment is durable and very easy to install. The cameras are able to be moved around easily, and the dust doesn’t seem to be a problem at all. We love our cameras. Thanks

I run a 250 head cow-calf operation. I purchased an AgCam about a month ago for my calving season. I have put the camera on the yard light pole in the heifer pen, and the receiver is hooked up to my TV. I get a clear picture even during inclement weather, and I am impressed with the clarity even in the dark. This device saves me the time and energy of constantly checking on the heifers and disturbing them while they are calving. I now know when I have to be on hand to help just by turning on the TV. We saved two calves this year so far that were twisted in the heifers by being able to see the distress and getting out to assist them. What especially impressed me was the personal assistance that Bruce Treleaven gave while I was setting my AgCam up. I never felt like my money was taken, and I was left on my own to figure it out. I would highly recommend the AgCam to large or small cattle operations; it will soon pay for itself.

General Manager of Operations Silver Silos Terminal – We installed an AgCam at our grain handling facility to help us identify any leakage from rail cars during loading operations. This camera has allowed us to reduce leakage to almost nil, almost eliminating the amount of workload required after the fact to clean up the spilled grain. At times during our loading, the lens can become totally covered with dust, and still, it gives us a perfect picture and lets us know exactly what is happening at ground level. The AgCam is truly an amazing piece of equipment, and we consider it to be the easiest way for us to reduce our day to day workload.

We have used our AgCam camera and monitor system now for five years. We have recently upgraded our camera and purchased the new 9″ monitor. This represents one of the best systems on the market. My wife Bonnie operates our grain cart, and this system provides her with a clear view day or night, of each truck or wagon she needs to see. The service and help from Dakota Micro have been great. Thank You, Larry & Bonnie Marrs.

The AgCam camera allows the nut (peanut) buggy operator to see inside the trailer to keep it from overfilling and spilling peanuts on the ground. We have to wait until the dew dries every morning (around 10 to 11 am) before we start harvest, and continue until the dew falls at night (around 8 to 10 pm). The camera lets us see in the dark loading the trailers without having to use some other light source.
Pat Roggod - Gregory, South Dakota
The wireless AgCam camera system has been such an asset. We have saved several calves already, and in these temperatures, it has been a blessing. We have set it up on our house but can take the antenna & receiver to our office about 3/8 mile north, and it works great. I feel it’s the best purchase we’ve made in a long time.
Linda Swarinsky - Rockford, Illinois
Thank you for the quick shipping. The AgCam is now installed on our JD 4710 Sprayer on the rear boom & working great. It showed a problem clog on a spray tip——–the very first day! Well worth it! Thanks again.
John Arkansas Tree Planter - Arkansas
People always ask me, what is the difference between an AgCam vs. CabCam camera, was it worth the money? We had an AgCam camera get knocked off a tree planter. This camera was buried 18″ underground after being run over by a 6,000-pound machine and being compressed in the soil at up to 3,000 psi. Not knowing exactly where it was lost, we were able to use a metal detector to find the camera two days later, after heavy rain. We used an air compressor to blow the dirt from around the connecting pins. We then plugged the camera in, and it works and looks as good as new, except for some cosmetic damage where the blades struck the sides.
Todd Pistorius - SE, North Dakota
We use your AgCam camera year-round. During harvest, we use it in the tractor for the grain cart. We have a lot less fatigue at the end of the day by using your AgCam, which means more production, which means more efficiency. We have also used the Wireless AgCam Camera in our calving barn. We don’t have unnecessary trips to the barn at night. This is a wonderful product, and we definitely recommend AgCam; it is very user friendly and has many valuable uses. Thank you, AgCam.
Diane Coombs - Wroxton, Saskatchewan
We have had our AgCam set up and running for 48 hours, and it has almost paid for itself already. We had a cow with a brand new calf, another trying to steal it, and were able to get to the barn and intervene before disaster struck. Just the fact that we can watch what is going on, all the time not just when we walk down to the corral, makes all the difference in the world. We already had a black and white CabCam camera set up in the barn, but this outside color camera gives so much more detail in a bright, sharp image, even at night. Would highly recommend for any cattleman wanting to keep a close eye on their cattle… Dick & Diane Coombs, Bar C Ranch.

You guys sent me a 90 angle cable as a replacement earlier this year. I promised to send the original back to you. I ‘misplaced’ a connector end, recently found it, now I can return it. Your camera system is excellent on my Highline Bale Pro CFR1251. Your service has been top-notch. Thank you!
Mauro Laguna - Hialeah, Florida
The EnduraCam system is doing excellent so far; I must tell you guys this is a really robust and reliable product, could not be any happier with it.

Thank you for your past relationship with the Richland County Sheriff’s Office. It has been great working with an organization that truly cares about our needs.

We have used Dakota Micro Camera’s on our remote-controlled line grapples for four years and find them to be very durable and user friendly.
Mark Haan Washington County DOT - Stillwater, Minnesota
The Dakota Micro system we had installed on our trucks was overall a good experience for us. This system is foolproof for outdoor use and is very well constructed. To date, we have had no problems with the system. We would strongly recommend the Dakota Micro system because it is durable and can handle the constant jarring and abuse in all weather conditions.
