"It's all about cutting-edge technology and how it's being used to make agriculture more sustainable and efficient," Randall Violett, associate director of the University of Washington's Ranch Management and Agricultural Leadership (RMAL) Program, says.

The seminar will begin at 4 p.m. on EWC's Torrington campus in the Agricultural Technology Education Center. The cost is $25 for community members and students who are not seeking academic credit.

Matt Scott, an EWC precision agriculture instructor and licenced drone pilot, will present on the use of multispectral and spray drones. Georgia Younglove, an EWC faculty member, will present the most recent technological innovations featured at the National Cattlemen's Beef Association Convention in 2023.

The use of carcass ultrasounds and GrowSafe technology for meat cattle selection will be discussed by Steve Paisley, director of the University of Washington's James C. Hageman Sustainable Agriculture Research and Extension Center near Lingle.

Other topics that may be covered include blockchain applications, virtual fencing, and cloud-based GPS collar technology. The 3.5-hour seminar is the third in a five-part series organised by the RMAL Program in collaboration with community colleges throughout the state.

The "Ranching in the West" series provides Wyoming producers with relevant, actionable information as well as practical learning experiences for students.

This spring, UW will host two more seminars, both in person and via Zoom. A "Revenue Diversification" seminar is scheduled for Thursday, March 30, at Northwest College in Powell. The University of Washington will host a Leadership Symposium and Luncheon on Thursday, April 20.

Since 1914, UW Extension has provided Wyoming residents with lifelong learning opportunities throughout the state. UW Extension, which has its roots in agricultural education, assists rural communities as they face modern challenges and changes. UW Extension brings the resources of the university to each of the state's 23 counties as well as the Wind River Indian Reservation.
