Food for Thought—Finding Common Ground with Consumers about Technology in Agriculture.

Innovation is more important in modern agriculture than ever before. The industry as a whole is facing huge challenges, from rising costs of supplies, a shortage of labor, and changes in consumer preferences for transparency and sustainability. There is increasing recognition from agriculture corporations that solutions are needed for these challenges. Join the discussion with area businesses who work daily on creative solutions to make ranching and farming more efficient which improves the experience for consumers. During this luncheon you will learn about automation and robotics, livestock technology, and precision agriculture.
