Ag In Motion - Innovation

This is our first time attending Ag in Motion, just outside of Saskatoon, SK. The show is in its fifth year and has a heavy emphasis on field scale trials and demonstrations. The tag line SEE technology, TOUCH innovation, BE Empowered is certainly fitting for this event!

The Ag in Motion Innovations Program recognizes companies that advance agriculture in four areas:

  • Plant and Soil Science

  • Animal and Livestock

  • Agriculture Equipment

  • Agribusiness Services

In addition, six international ag-tech companies are part of the 2019 show, as Canadian farmers attract the attention of worldwide developers and innovators. Combine this with the release of new seed varieties (two Canterra wheat varieties), companies making new product announcements (autonomous dry spinner spreader) and showing off their products and services in unique ways (virtual reality at the AGI booth) and there is no shortage of innovation.

One day is not enough time for this show!

Farmily Vacation @aginmotion

Farm families know that the line between farm and family is often blurred. And many farm families would tell you that is what makes farming such a great profession and a great way of life! (At least most of the time.)

Ag in Motion

- a farmily vacation

We strongly believe that farming is an important profession because we are working to make the world a better place - not just for ourselves but by respecting the environment as we feed the world .

We also believe that modern farming continues to have a strong multi-generational tradition because younger generations have the willingness and the skill sets to adapt and mesh agriculture and technology. Multi-generational farm family traditions can only be built if our kids enjoy farm life and see the pleasure along side the hard work.

So, this week we set out on a Farmily vacation; combining a little time away with the Ag in Motion farm expo. If you can’t be there in person you can follow our adventures here or via social media. You can also follow @aginmotion on Instagram and Twitter or find Ag in Motion on Facebook.
