Agricultural Excellence Conference – Seeding Transition to Harvest Change

Title: Agricultural Excellence Conference – Seeding Transition to Harvest Change
Location: Winnipeg, MB
Dates: November 19-21, 2014

Farm Management Canada is bringing back its flagship Managing Excellence in Agriculture Conference under a new name – the Agricultural Excellence Conference! The last Managing Excellence in Agriculture Conference was held in February 2010 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. FMC is excited to once again offer this opportunity to Canada’s farmers and industry stakeholders, inviting back old friends and welcoming new ones to its national network of innovative business thinkers.

In an increasingly complex and global marketplace, farm managers must be able to access the information, resources and tools to continue to develop their farm business management skills to compete and succeed.

The Excellence Conference is different from other agricultural events in that it:
• focuses specifically on addressing key farm business management principles using a systematic approach to business management
• welcomes farmers across regions and production sectors to exchange and gain insight into beneficial management practices
• welcomes diverse stakeholders, providing learning to those who are positioned to provide services to farmers (government, advisors, academia, organizations, etc.)

The conference will be a 2-day learning event via plenary, concurrent sessions, discussion panels, debate, and a farm/industry tour. The event will provide an opportunity for sharing insights, transferring knowledge and networking among the delegates. Delegates are expected to come from farms, agricultural businesses, government, industry associations, and private industry (i.e. banks, suppliers, etc.).

Having a physical meeting place will help farmers and likewise industry stakeholders build their business network with other like-minded industry professionals.
