Blockchain technology, developed in Wyoming, is now being used to track beef across the globe. Blockchain is a data system that allows the food to be tracked from the source to the end consumer. It helps provide costumer assurances that the products are safe. Come learn more about this new technology, current uses, benefits and challenges. Join in the discussion on how this technology may or may not be usable to Montana ranchers.
