The Data & Innovations Summit- A Gathering Place for Dairy Tech Coming This June in Sioux Falls, SD
Today Chrissy Wozniak sits down with Cheryl Marti to talk about the upcoming Data and Innovations Summit in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.Cheryl Marti has a rich dairy background – in the past she worked in the AI industry at ABS Global in the Genetic Management System, Sire Acquisition, and R&D areas.  Then later joined Pfizer Animal Health, now Zoetis, where - she worked with large dairies on genomics, reproduction, records analysis, and transition cows until mid-2014 when she moved into marketing for nearly 5 years for US dairy genetics and cattle reproduction, with her most notable launch being CLARIFIDE Plus. Following her time at Zoetis, she began her consulting business and has worked with six organizations since that time. She has worked with hundreds of dairy herds of all sizes across the U.S. and well over a dozen countries on 6 continents!

The summit will be an in-person (only) event June 30, 2022 at the Sioux Falls Convention Center in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.Data and technology are a fast-growing part of the dairy industry, and for good reason. The continued pressure to improve, be better, more efficient and/or sustainable—or however you measure success—will continue to challenge and change how the dairy industry operates. An important realization is that data and innovations of all sorts can help meet those opportunities.The value-packed agenda was built by producers, with all dairy producers in mind—regardless of size, breed, commercial or registered—along with their advisors. College-age students interested in a future career, farming, or consulting, and/or looking to get a head start for dairy challenge contests, are welcome. Cost for the event is only $25—which includes a warm meal. DIS will showcase the power of data as a tool for the dairy industry. Industry-leading speakers and panelists will share ideas on how to better utilize today’s dairy data technologies and systems to maximize efficiency, profitability and results on dairies of all sizes.The summit will include four speakers and two panel discussions. Speakers will address Dairy Data and Technologies: Past, Present, and Future; Do’s and Don’ts of Interpreting Farm Data: Avoiding Common Data Mistakes; Unlocking the Power of Data for the Hardest Working Cow in the Business; and How to Determine if Precision Dairy Analytics and Technologies are Right for Your Farm.The summit has been approved for six hours of continuing education credit in jurisdictions that recognize RACE approval.

Focusing on the Details - Crop production strategies during supply shortages & high commodity prices
Chrissy Wozniak is joined today by Ben Schapelhouman, founder of TECC Agriculture. Ben dives into crop scouting technology and what the economic impact is when you take control of the small details.TECC Agriculture is an agricultural services and technology company based in (Northeastern) Ontario. Our mission is to help farmers manage uncertainty and stress by remotely monitoring their field crops and connecting them with timely agronomic advice. Traditional crop scouting demands precious time or experienced scouts who are in short supply. Today growers and agronomists increasingly make use of aerial drones and satellite imagery for a view of the big picture in a field.  TECC Ag bridges the gap by using electric dirt bikes to travel between rows or along sprayer tracks to collect high resolution imagery that can be used to head off production risks before they develop into costly production challenges. Integrations with a growing list of farm management software partners allow growers and trusted advisors to view imagery on their preferred platform.
