 Navigating with tabs | Customizing weather and coming events

Ropin' the Web has a new look and a number of improvements to simplify how you find information as you navigate through the site.

Navigating with Tabs

The tabs at the top of the page offer one-click access to the most visited parts of the website. Following is a brief description of each tab.

  • About the Ministry includes organizational information for Alberta Agriculture. It also houses the Ministry's Newsrooms, which highlights the latest news releases and information bulletins.
  • Under Find Staff you can search for specific contacts within the Alberta Agriculture, or search by location or organizational level.
  • The Information tab contains all the Department's news, fact sheets, weather, events, and more.
  • Decision Making Tools has interactive applications to help you manage your farm business.
  • Directories links you to a wealth of resources and people in Alberta’s agriculture industry.
  • The General Store makes it easy to buy and sell everything from hay to manure.
  • Programs and Services includes eligibility information, application forms, and deadlines relevant to agricultural producers and agri-business in Alberta.
  • Maps allow you to pinpoint soil and weather data, pest forecasts, and more.
Customizing Weather and Coming Events

In the Information tab, you'll find weather information and a list of coming events. Both the weather information and coming events can be customized.

Weather
Select your community from the drop-down menu under the "Current Weather" section. If your community is not listed, click on the "Other Locality" link. You'll see the current and next day's weather for your area.



For more weather information, click on RTW Weather & Climate Page. You'll find more forecast information, along with links to data on temperature, precipitation, and frost.




Coming events
You can view a more complete list of coming events by click on the "More Events" link, or by visiting www.agriculture.alberta.ca/events.

By selecting either an audience or location from the drop-down menus on the left, you can tailor the list of events to your farming operation or community. You can also use the calendar to jump ahead to events later in the year.





If you have questions or comments about the new look, please contact us.
