Grassroots tools that build operational strength

Farmers don’t collect data because they want to, they do it because they have to. Consumers are looking for more information and industry initiatives need more data to build integrity in the programs available for sheep producers. AgSights has been working with grassroots farmers to bring tools to the farm that help save time and add value to the decisions you need to make on a daily basis. As a farmer co-op, collaboration is key. In our presentation we will highlight how the tools we offer can help and highlight how collaboration with other service providers can bring the tools needed today on-farm that enable future growth.

Betty-Jo Almond is the General Manager of AgSights and has been with the company for over 10 years. She was previously the Business Development Manager of AgSights for 7 years, focusing on sales and customer service, system development, building industry relationships and develop new partnerships. She obtained her BSc in Animal Science from the University of Guelph and has taken part in additional programs including the BUILD Leadership program offered through Beef Farmers of Ontario (BFO) and is currently completing the Advanced Agricultural Leadership Program. Betty-Jo was raised on a beef farm in Seeley’s Bay near Kingston, Ontario and now lives with her husband and their two children, Joseph and Hailey, spending much of their time at softball events across Ontario, and volunteering as a board member at a local recreation club.
