Thanks to everyone who stopped by our booth last week at the 47th annual World Ag Exposition. We had a great time being part of the expo, demonstrating how our job training simulators can help the agricultural industry maximize their profits while minimizing their risk. Attracting over 100,000 attendees and 1,500 exhibitors, from more than 50 countries, World Ag is the largest agricultural expo in the world.

Located in Tulare, California, a state suffering from the one of the worst droughts in modern history, most attendees were well aware of the need to conserve resources, while still being able to produce high yields. Ag World had a strong focus on technology this year, as farmers look for fast and affordable solutions that are innovative and help them increase their profit margins. From ForgeFX’s virtual job training simulators, to ASI’s unmanned farming vehicle technology, to Advanced Reconnaissance’s aerial hyperspectral sensors that provide farmers with vegetative stress anomaly data for their fields, there were a number of new technology-based solutions available for all attendees to explore.

In addition to our heavy equipment operator simulators, perhaps our most popular application at the expo was our virtual pork production simulator. Developed for Zoetis, formally Pfizer Animal Health, this animal production training simulator allows users to train for the process of running a wean to finish swine barn, without the associated costs and risks.

It was great to meet everyone at Ag World this year and see all of the great new techniques and solutions that farmers are utilizing to increase production while conserving resources. Let’s all hope for rain, and we’ll see you next year.
