How Will Ag Robotics Affect You?

Some believe that most any job can be automatied, and the more repetitious the sooner a machine can take over.  Do you see any jobs that have recently been automated on your farm or ones that  you'd like to see roboticized?


I'll be glad when the combine steers itselfr.  I already have auto steer planting.  I'm sure autosteer in beans is pretty easy for newer machines.  Corn maybe not so easy, but certianly possible.


How will all the automation affect your work, your succession plan, your employees?  Would you rather hire a person or buy a machine?
