For those curious about the latest technological innovations in agriculture, the University of Wyoming College of Agriculture, Life Sciences and Natural Resources will lead a seminar at Eastern Wyoming College (EWC) Thursday, March 2.
The seminar will begin at 4 p.m. in the Agricultural Technology Education Center on EWC’s Torrington campus. For community members and students not seeking academic credit, the cost is $25. Dinner is provided. To register, visit www.uwyo.edu/uwag/rmal.
“It’s all about cutting-edge technology and how that’s being used to make agriculture more sustainable and efficient,” says Randall Violett, associate director of UW’s Ranch Management and Agricultural Leadership (RMAL) Program.
Matt Scott, a precision agriculture instructor at EWC and a licensed drone pilot, will make a presentation on the use of multispectral drones and spray drones. Georgia Younglove, also an EWC faculty member, will share the latest technological innovations featured at the recent 2023 National Cattlemen’s Beef Association Convention. Steve Paisley, director of UW’s James C. Hageman Sustainable Agriculture Research and Extension Center near Lingle, will discuss the use of carcass ultrasounds and GrowSafe technology for beef cattle selection.
Additional topics may include blockchain application, virtual fencing and cloud-based GPS collar technology.
The 3.5-hour seminar is the third event in a five-part series facilitated by the RMAL Program in partnership with community colleges across the state. Titled “Ranching in the West,” the series provides relevant, actionable information to Wyoming producers as well as practical learning experiences for students.
UW will host two additional seminars this spring, available in person and via Zoom. A seminar titled “Revenue Diversification” is scheduled Thursday, March 30, at Northwest College in Powell. A Leadership Symposium and Luncheon is scheduled Thursday, April 20, at UW.
