Blair grows winter and spring wheat, malt barley, lentils, peas, garbanzo beans, lucerne hay and cattle on his operation and he is a well-known promoter of precision farming.

Blair is a leading advocate of unmanned air systems for precision agriculture, and holds a precision field day each year to demonstrate how on his operation.
