SASC seeked input through a series of community engagement sessions from partners in agriculture innovation.
The foundational principle of the Smart Agri-Food Super Cluster is to foster collaboration amongst agriculture communities by connecting technologies through Smart Agri-Food “nodes” which will be located across the country.
A discussion was held to discussion how the Smart Agri-Food Super Cluster will address the issues of priority for the Canadian livestock sector.
This day highlighted four livestock initiatives proposed in the Smart Agri-Food Super Cluster. Opportunities were identified to refine and build upon initial concepts within the SASC moving forward, with a focus on improving supply chain coordination, accelerating on-farm innovation adoption, supporting trade growth and economic development, and reaching sustainability goals.
