Members Technology Showcase

Investments into technology on your farm is more than just purchasing the newest and latest things available. Technology can be the solution to a variety of on-farm challenges including enhancing biosecurity for animals and humans, reducing the need for labour, reducing labour-intensive work, and more.

Technology can also enhance processes and eliminate waste in the form of resources, loss through inefficiency, and time.  Measuring and improving these can improve the bottom line of your cost of production.

The following section provides an overview of how to consider and assess areas of improvement that could benefit from new technology.  There are lots of opportunities to invest in equipment that will allow you to reduce the need for labour and make work areas safer.

Why Technology?

Lean thinking - It is a philosophy of production that was originally used in the manufacturing sector but has been widely adopted to all facets of production which have repetitive production processes. Thinking lean is all about improving performance and eliminating loss and waste. 

Smart investments - Working with your technology and financial advisors are two good places to start before making an investment.  Implementing technology within your operation requires a plan and a clear idea of what the desired outcomes will be. To get started on assessing new technologies in your farm operation, refer to these resources.
