Shared notes from the call: (bolding action items)
CAFF Small Farms Tech Expo and Western Goat on March 1st. We will have a GOAT booth, there will be a session on farm management software, this will be developers and users on the panel talking about how their software works. WE’re hoping to organize some sort of needs assessment to understand famres needs around ag tech. WE also plan to have a social hour at the end of the day to hopefully connect with more farmers and share more about GOAT. Will the panel be streamed? We will ask Elizabeth from CAFF on the follow-up call tomorrow. It would be nice to have a report out on the experience of a mini GOAT on the forum.
