Blockchain Technology Could Make Wyoming Beef A Premium Product
Monday, September 10, 2018
Wyoming’s agriculture industry is trying its hand at blockchain technology. Beefchain.io, a private company, is one of those businesses that started after Wyoming passed a number of pro-blockchain laws. The goal is to use blockchain technology to track data points about cattle and share the information with consumers: pasture to plate.
Bonita Carlson grew up on a ranch just south of Sundance. She remembers a time her mom was gone and she helped out with the laundry. Along with her clothes, she threw in some of her dad’s shirts.
“When I opened the washing machines and saw all of his records from the whole year of that calf crop…destroyed in the washing machines,” said Carlson.
