Join us November 8-9 for BeefTech

Join Northlands on November 8 and 9 for BeefTech presented by realagriculture — an interactive beef industry learning event.

BeefTech is a comprehensive agriculture conference focusing on state-of-the-art practices and technology in the beef industry.

  • Hands-on workshops and labs
  • Technology demonstrations
  • Technical learning sessions

Agriculture experts will share knowledge on a range of topics from the use of drones in ranching to using ultrasound to predict carcass traits. Attendees can take in a choice of nearly 20 sessions of intuitive knowledge and insight.

These sessions are unique in that they’re as informative as they are interactive. Session speakers will put new management practices and technologies directly in attendees’ hands, giving them the opportunity to choose the right technology that will make them – and those involved in the production chain, profitable.

Sessions include:

  • Cow-Calf Cost of Production: Calculator Tutorial – Kathy Larson
  • Managing Cattle from Above: Use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles for Precision Ranching – John Church
  • Timed Breeding: How Protocols Work – Don Miller
  • Lessons in Advocacy: Tips to Help You Speak Up – Andrew Campbell
  • Building A Risk Management Program for Your Cattle Operations – Ryan Copithorne

Featured Keynotes:

Robert Saik, Agri-Trend – “The Agriculture Manifesto”

Rob will take you on a quick journey showing how farmers are integrating technology to feed a growing world population. He will touch on robotics, artificial intelligence, sensor integration, bio synthesis (GE and GMO), data systems and environment sustainability. Finally, we will look at HOW we could integrate all these technologies to best serve our farmer customers through new business opportunities offered by our dealerships. And lastly, you will walk away with a sense that, in spite of what the media reports, things are actually pretty good and getting better all the time.

Andrew Campbell, Fresh Air – “Stand Up for Your Industry!”

The world is more connected than ever before. But with that connection, comes a barrage of information that is hard to sort through from fact and fiction. In agriculture, we’re starting to see what that information can do to public trust, as more regulations and buyer demands are implemented, some of which aren’t any safer, but merely a nod to misunderstood public pressure. Something can be done. Something needs to be done. Public outreach through social media, dinner conversations, grocery check-out line thank-yous and more can all help. But you’ve got to step up and do it.

Explore and experience emerging technologies and innovative management practices. Learn how to implement technology in your beef operation to improve production and increase profitability.

Pessimistic or gloomy would be appropriate descriptors, definitely out of tune, even if you're optimistic. After three rounds with little progress, U.S. negotiators came out swinging, tabling multiple 'non-starters' in the eyes of Canada and…Read more »
