Smart Ranch Innovations – the Pitstra Regenerative Agriculture Demonstration
Implementing grazing strategies that maximize soil, plant, and animal health can require intensive management. Labour shortages, increasing production costs, and remote locations are current challenges to Alberta beef producers. Being able to remotely monitor cattle activity, water availability, weather conditions and soil parameters using innovative technologies has the potential for significant cost savings.
This session will provide an update on an Olds College demonstration evaluating remote monitoring technologies at their Pitstra pasture location. Further, it will describe the first three years of regenerative agriculture practices being employed at the Pitstra location, including initiatives undertaken thus far and future plans.
