Welcome to this week in AGvisorPRO featuring our favourite events
Week of January 20th, 2023
This past summer, AGvisorPRO was at AgSmart in Olds, AB. AgSmart is an event put on by Olds College, and is a must-see educational expo focused on data and technology across the agriculture industry. This event is unique because producers and industry gather to learn and see the latest innovations being demonstrated.
The unique expo format brings the conference outdoors, showcasing why it makes sense to invest in equipment and technology to capture data and how to implement that data to increase productivity and profitability for farm operations.
Mark your calendars already, because AgSmart is happening August 1st to 2nd in 2023 at Olds College! Learn more about AgSmart here.
StrongHer Together Conference
In November, the AGvisorPRO team had the opportunity to attend the StrongHer Together Women in Ag conference in Fort Benton, Montana.

Thank you, Stacy Bronec and Chandee Bombgardner, for the invitation, and we were honoured to sponsor and attend this event! If you are a woman in agriculture, be sure to check out the SgrongHer Together Conference Facebook page for updates.
