GUELPH — The University of Guelph’s Ridgetown Campus is hosting its 26 annual Southwestern Agricultural Conference in the new year.
If you were planning on attending in person, forget it. Tickets went fast. As of Nov. 29, Jan. 3 was sold out and Jan. 4 was 97 per cent sold out. But the event does offer a livestream option, letting farmers participate from the comfort of their own homes.
Farmers who register for the livestream get access to 28 of the sessions, including corn weed control with Dr. Peter Sikkema, maximizing cover crops with Sarah Carlson of the Practical Farmers of Iowa and supreme soybeans with Dr. Shawn Conley of the University of Wisconsin.
All of the livestreaming will take place on the second day of the conference, and will include 13 sessions recorded on the first day.
The livestream costs $75, tax included.
