Grey County would like to invite you to Ag 4.0.1.

Technology continues to exert huge influence on the worlds of agriculture and food. Learn about the latest trends and how they will affect the future of farm practice through a day of keynotes, panels and workshops.

Grey County is excited to continue the conversations we started in 2016 about the rural renaissance at the intersection of agriculture and technology. As with last year, we’ve assembled an inspiring line-up of innovators and thought leaders to guide our sessions and engage participants.
