FarmLogs today announced that the most recognized voice of agriculture, Orion Samuelson, will keynote all three stops of the 2017 FarmLogs User Conference. The series of three, one-day events will take place in Des Moines, IA, on January 17, in Champaign, IL, on Jan. 19 and in Lubbock, TX, on January 24.
Inducted into the National Radio Broadcasters Hall of Fame in 2003 and heard daily on radio stations throughout the Midwest on his nationally syndicated National Farm Report, Samuelson has been providing farmers with the latest agricultural news since 1960. In addition to hosting National Farm Report, Samuelson also hosts the weekly “Samuelson Sez” radio program and the weekly RFD-TV show “This Week in Agri-Business.”
Kevin Van Trump, creator of The Van Trump Report, will speak at the Des Moines event. Sixth-generation Michigan farmer and Ph.D. of Crop and Soil Sciences, Dr. Tim Boring will share advanced strategies for implementing new production techniques including narrow rows, strip-till, cover crops, relay cropping and strip cropping at the Champaign event. FarmLogs CEO Jesse Vollmar and FarmLogs Vice President of Science Dr. Tracy Blackmer round out the speaker lineup.
The 2017 FarmLogs User Conference, sponsored by Ford F-Series Trucks, American’s best-selling truck for 39 years, is expected to bring together over 500 farmers and agronomists from around the country. Attendees will walk away with in-depth knowledge and practical strategies that they can immediately put into action to manage their farm for profit. Those in attendance will be the first to learn about the 2017 FarmLogs products and features focused on connecting and exchanging data between machinery and FarmLogs, planning and monitoring profitability throughout the season and visualizing and analyzing yield, application, and field trial data. The 2016 F-150 and 2017 Super Duty, Motor Trend Truck of the Year, will be on display for attendees to interact with and to experience the class-leading technologies that can assist farmers in their day-to-day operations.
Admission to each event is free; however, registration is required as breakfast, lunch and snack breaks will be provided.
