Event Details


October 4, 2023


12pm - 1pm EST




Southwest New York Dairy, Livestock and Field Crops Program

Are you interested in grazing, an experienced grazier, or just fascinated by new technology? Join CCE and DGA for a webinar to discover the PaddockTrac technology! This technology is still under testing but is a promising tool for future data-driven pasture management.

Why Attend?

  • Learn how PaddockTrac, developed by Dr. Stacey Hamilton and Ryan Lock at the University of Missouri, has the potential to unleash the power of data-driven pasture management to boost productivity and say goodbye to the guesswork and "what if?" moments in grazing strategy.
  • Explore how this innovative sensor, mounted on your ATV, automatically measures forage height, growth rates, and pasture cover.
  • See how the Bluetooth-enabled sensor connects to a smartphone app for real-time data analysis, rank your paddocks, and provide actionable insights to make proactive decisions.

In this webinar, Dr. Stacey Hamilton will give a 30-minute presentation on how it works, why this technology was developed, and where it is going. We will have an extensive Q&A session, allowing participants to have an open space to ask questions and share their experiences.

WHEN: October 4th, 2023, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM (EST)

REGISTRATION: This webinar is free and open to anyone interested in grazing. Participants will receive the Zoom webinar URL after their registration is confirmed.
