Co-hosted by the University of Manitoba’s National Centre for Livestock and the Environment and Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, this online conference will feature morning workshops and afternoon panel discussions with producers, researchers, and industry specialists representing both crop and livestock sectors.
Workshops will provide hands-on interactive training for the Holos model and Crop Metrics interactive mapping tool. Themed afternoon sessions will feature facilitated panel discussions addressing the role of livestock in improving soil health, evidence of climate change and the resulting changes in management, and a look at what the new carbon economy could mean for Canadian farmers.
This conference is intended for a diverse audience. The aim is to bring together researchers, students, producers, government, commodity organizations and industry representatives with a range of perspectives to collectively share ideas and experiences about how to improve agricultural sustainability in Canada.
The three days will provide opportunities to explore novel ideas and concepts, including an exciting session with graduate students who will share their research through short videos.
