The Cutting Edge: Modeling the Process and Efficiency of Mowing
Brandon D. Gordon
Dr. Jon Beck, Faculty Mentor

A common activity on farms is grassland mowing. The reasons for mowing include hay production, weed control, government regulations (e.g., conservation program agreements), reduction of fire hazard, crop management, and even appearance. Mowing entails costs, for instance, mowing costs time, money, and machinery depreciation. Mowing can also affect wildlife. This project seeks to quantify these costs by modeling the process of mowing through a graphical simulation of the process.
