Flokk will will be exhibiting, and demonstrating, at Canada's premiere Ag Technology event, AgSmart.
Taking place August 10 and 11, 2021 at Olds College, AgSmart isn’t just a trade show, it’s a hands-on demonstration and education exposition focused on technology and data across the agriculture sector – how to gather it, and how to use it to enhance productivity and profits.
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is moving forward with the adoption of RFID ear tags as the official ear tag for use in interstate movement of cattle.
This will result in US cow/calf producers soon facing the same dilemma that Canadian producers have today; the necessity to acquire and apply RFID tags to their stock, but no affordable and suitable tool available to realize value from these tags to their own operation.
RFD-TV has generously provided the item featuring Flokk and Blindline farms so it can be watched here.
Many thanks to Dianne Finstad and RFD-TV.
