Opening Keynote: Craig Culver
Craig Culver's passion for business started over 50 years ago when his parents bought their first restaurant. Modeling his mom and dad’s command of the kitchen and gracious, midwestern hospitality,Craig grew up serving guests and learning firsthand about delicious, cooked-to-order food.

In 1984 came an idea for a restaurant no one could resist. Craig and his family opened the very first Culver’s featuring Butter Burgers and Fresh Frozen Custard in their hometown of Sauk City, Wisconsin. Then, in 1987, the franchising arm, Culver Franchising System, Inc., was established. Shaped after the Culver family’s team approach around hospitality and great food, the first successful franchise was opened in Baraboo, Wisconsin in 1990. Today, there are nearly 600 Culver’s restaurants in 24 states.

As much as the business is about food, Craig will tell anyone who asks that Culver’s is actually a “people place.” This business philosophy fuels the way Craig coaches team members in the restaurant and beyond to always do what’s right for guests, ensuring that they leave the restaurant happy every single time.The Culver's story will enlighten and motivate you to become a more intentional and thoughtful leader--and you are sure to leave with a smile on your face.

SDSU Animal Health Lab

The South Dakota Animal Disease Research and Diagnostic Laboratory (ADRDL) has served the citizens of the state and region with timely and accurate veterinary diagnostic services since 1887. A dedicated and experienced staff performs a full range of diagnostic testing services that arm veterinarians and health officials with the information they need to protect and improve animal and therefore, human health.

The staff of the ADRDL are nationally recognized for their skill in diagnosing key diseases of cattle, pigs, and other livestock. Additionally, the ADRDL supports veterinarians and caretakers of horses and companion animals, plays a vital role in identifying zoonotic diseases such as rabies, and helps to keep our food supply safe by testing food products for bacteria that may cause food-borne illness.

The ADRDL is one of fewer than 40 veterinary diagnostic laboratories accredited by the American Association of Veterinary Laboratory Diagnosticians (AAVLD). In addition, the lab is an integral member of the National Animal Health Laboratory Network (NAHLN), a network of diagnostic laboratories across the US that help detect nationally significant animal diseases such as influenza and Foot & Mouth Disease. Expertise in detecting agents of food-borne illness is important in the ADRDL's roles as a regional labroatory for the Food Emergency Response Network (FERN).

SDSU Plant Diagnostic Lab

The Plant Diagnostic Clinic serves the state of South Dakota and the Great Plains region by providing fast and accurate plant health and diagnostic information for the agricultural and horticultural industries. We perform routine diagnosis of field crop and horticultural crop diseases, and occasionally serve as a point of contact in SD for major agricultural biosecurity issues related to plant health.

The Plant Diagnostic Clinic is also the SDSU Soybean Cyst Nematode Testing Service. We provide sample analysis and management recommendations to crop managers dealing with the most damaging pest of soybeans in the world - the soybean cyst nematode (SCN). SCN samples are analyzed, free-of-charge, for SD growers thanks to a grant from the SD Soybean Research and Promotion Council.

The Plant Diagnostic Clinic works cooperatively with other colleges and departments at SDSU (i.e. College of Education & Human Sciences on a Food Safety Challenge Grant to create an educational module; Veterinary & Biomedical Sciences on moldy grain and feed issues; Horticulture, Forestry, Landscape & Parks on diagnostic collaborations), as well as other partners in diagnostics/biosecurity across the country.

SWIVL Technology in the CTE Classroom

Participants in this workshop will learn how the Mitchell School District utilizes SWIVL Technology in their CTE classrooms.  Joe Childs, MHS Principal along with other Mitchell staff will share their knowledge about implementing the technology to address these challenges:  enhancing the technological skills of the faculty, providing repeated learning opportunities for students in the building and in surrounding schools, and reducing the seemingly unavoidable instructional losses due to teacher/student absences.  Accomplishing all of these is possible through the use of classroom lesson recording technology, in this case SWIVL. 

 

When teachers use SWIVL, as demonstrated by a 3-teacher pilot this year at MHS, they have and extensively use the recordings to enhance their own instruction.  They also create libraries of lessons for their classrooms which students can then visit and revisit to assist them in their understanding.  When the instructor is absent from the classroom and students left in the less capable hands of the substitute, with SWIVL the lesson can still be provided ahead of time or from the past with no loss of instructional time.  When the student is absent--games, activities, illness, etc.--they can go to the day's lesson and instantly have what they would have otherwise missed.

Precision Agriculture
Limited Capacity seats available

SDSU is at the forefront with its first-in-the-nation Precision Agriculture bachelor's degree within the Ag & Biosystems Engineering Department. Precision technology and training are key to increasing farm profitability and will play a major role in ecosystem sustainability. Agriculture is experiencing a fast-paced evolution as technology continues to develop. Precision agriculture has emerged with an array of new and exciting - and increasingly high-tech - tools. The integration of computer technology with farm equipment, farm sensors, GPS navigation, satellite imagery and drone imagery are quickly revolutionizing agricultural production. While this revolutionary evolution is creating new opportunities within the agricultural industry, it is also generating a need for college graduates, pertinent research, and Extension expertise related to precision agriculture.

Participants for this in-depth session will have the opportunity to utilize the department's eight Kubota vehicles for hands-on precision ag experience; as well as software in the precision ag computer lab.

Limited to 32 participants through conference registration - first-come, first-serve.
