Agribition launches Animal Ag Tech Awards

Canadian Western Agribition has announced its first annual Canadian Animal Ag Tech Awards

CEO Shaun Kindopp says any business working in animal agriculture technology can apply for the Awards in three categories, Most Innovative, Business of the Year, and Rising Star in Animal Ag Tech.

"Animal ag tech is on the rise. I've talked with a lot of the folks and our partners, at Cultivator. They mentioned to us that over 30 per cent of the cohorts that they're seeing are focused in that animal ag tech sector. There was a gentleman that I've been in contact with,  who set a goal that if he can reach a certain quota he would quit his job and go full-time in the animal ag tech sector. With the leads that he was able to gather an Agribition two years ago, last year, he was able to quit his job and go full time in that sector. So it's something we're proud of, and we're hoping to have a lot more of those success stories."

Canadian Western Agribition's first annual Canadian Animal Ag Tech Awards are presented by Deloitte Canada.

An Enriched Barn Renovation with Planeview Farms

Video: An Enriched Barn Renovation with Planeview Farms

Canada has made a commitment to hen welfare and is phasing out conventional cages, replacing them with innovative enriched housing, or cage-free housing. By 2036 all conventional cages will have been replaced.

Making the transition from conventional cages to a different type of housing is not a simple process. Often, the older barns need to be replaced entirely, but sometimes they can be retrofitted to accommodate a new housing type.

Planeview Farms invited us onto their farm to take a look at what’s involved in transitioning an older barn to new, enriched housing. Watch as they take us inside their renovation!
