SIA 2020 convention & agm

James Tansey PAg

Have you registered for the 2020 convention? There are many informative sessions and workshops planned for this year's event including James Tansey's session: Considerations for insecticide application: when to spray, when to hold your fire, and why.

There will also be a screening of Guardians of the Grasslands, a short documentary brought to you by a group of dedicated conservationists, ranchers and Canadian filmmakers. The film explores the current state of one of the world’s most endangered ecosystems, the Great Plains grasslands, and the role that cattle play in its survival. As we reach new critical levels in the loss of these iconic landscapes, there are important truths we must face about humanity’s relationship with the land and our food. A panel discussion will follow the showing of the film.

Details are available on the
SIA website.

Earlybird registration ends March 15!
