The Quantified Farm Conference

December 6-7, 2017 at the Rimrock Resort Hotel in Banff, AB

“The Spirit of Farm Innovation”

From the first prairie homestead to industrial ventures emerging from a farmer’s backyard shed, the spirit of innovation has always been central to farming. We’ve seen this industry transform from manual labour, to the industrial revolution, to ag-tech.

The future ahead will bring new capabilities with more data sources, intelligent robotics, and better data insights. Our challenge is to not lose sight of the many opportunities that each farmer has in making new tools work for their unique operation.

The 2017 Quantified Farm celebrated the innovator within each of us. We looked at the various ways that innovation continues to improve the business of farming and saw how today’s farms are using innovative methods to create new opportunities.

The Quantified Farm helps you understand the steps you can take to ensure you have the quantitative data, processes, and tools you need to make quick, proactive and low-risk decisions and become decisive farmers through the following discussions:

  • Identifying opportunities and areas for farm improvement
  • Implementing decision-making tools and new technologies
  • Using data to measure outcomes, evaluate processes and drive performance
  • Fostering team communication to drive innovation
  • Finding new markets

“Anyone who farms should come to this event not only for the discussions and the presentations, but to talk to other farmers from other areas of the country!”
Ryan J
“You’re broadening your horizons and hearing what others are doing. And learning about the cutting edge of agriculture today.”
Maurice B
“The conference is something we look forward to every year. My wife comes with me and we make a bit of a holiday out of it.”
Jeff P
“There have been rapid advancements in agriculture and if you’re standing still you will get left behind. We need to be mindful of what’s ahead, not only in two years but in ten.”
Trish M
“One of the most important things you can do for your business is adopting technology that fits your operations and matches how you think.”
Garth D
“I love soil and I don’t want you to ever treat your soil like dirt. It’s important to know that precision-ag is as much about agronomy as it is about technology, and we need to integrate those together.”
Steve M
