Event Description

Join us as we explore practical applications of dairy automation and management using sensor based data. This conference will examine the state of the art technology available today, and the limitless possibilities for the future.

Precision Dairy management is bringing about a new model for labour efficient dairy production as shown with the development of robotic milking, which dramatically reduces labour requirements. Going beyond robotic milking, precision technology can monitor cow health and welfare as well as productivity through level of activity, body weight changes, udder health and milk composition, thereby defining animal needs that can be met through robotic equipment that has traditionally been met though human care and labour.

Objectives:

Bring together the best technology in precision dairy management in the world

Provide a sharing environment for researchers, technologists, developers and producers to expand their knowledge of precision management technology.

Stretch the boundaries of application of technology in improved management and welfare of dairy cattle

Who should attend?

Researchers, dairy industry personnel, farmers, veterinarians and anyone involved in the dairy industry should attend to exchange information and learn about the latest sophisticated technologies for milking, herd management, herd health, and advances in nutrition and reproductive management.

Bush Hog, first to market with a 10 year limited gearbox warranty

Since 1951, Bush Hog Inc. has built trust with our customers and “reliability” isn’t just a word, it is the foundation of our culture. Bush Hog products have earned the reputation for their durability and ruggedness in the most challenging work environments. This reputation continues today and to demonstrate this, Bush Hog is offering the only 10 Year Limited Gearbox Warranty in the rotary cutter industry. This exciting announcement came at the National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, Kentucky this past week.

We take a lot for granted

EIGHT DAYS IN November 2019 taught us lessons that I hope we carry with us for some time. CN Rail train crews went on the longest rail strike in a decade and the ramifications of that strike were felt nationally — throughout agriculture and into other sectors as well. We have had grain service disruptions before, and we have dealt with them, but this was something we didn’t know would happen, and we didn’t foresee the ramifications to grain farming and agriculture until it was happening.
