Join us to learn about Farm Management Canada’s new National Farm Leadership Program designed for busy farmers and ag professionals who want to improve their personal and professional effectiveness.
Few of us consider our own leadership as a competitive advantage, however research shows that leadership impacts every dimension of performance including the well-being of the leader and those they work with. Canada already has some of the best farm managers in the world; increasing our leadership effectiveness is the next step to stay on top.
Kelly will highlight the benefits of focusing on leader effectiveness and unique program features that help farmers identify the critical development areas that will have the greatest impact on their personal and professional lives and help build the capacity to achieve more of what matters.

The Agricultural Excellence Conference (AgEx) welcomes anyone and everyone from farmers to advisors, academia, organizations, private industry, and government to join us in Fredericton to exchange expertise and insights to continue to position Canada’s farmers for success through farm management excellence.
The theme Cultivating Resilience focuses on building the capacity for you and your farm to weather any storm and seize opportunity. A healthy farm depends on a healthy farmer, healthy relationships and healthy business. We will discuss the future of Canadian agriculture, the implications for farm managers, and the practical ways farmers can achieve sustainable growth and prosperity. Conference-goers will come away from AgEx equipped with information and tools to enhance Canada’s farm businesses.

Since it was first held in 2011, the Annual Canadian Agri-Food Policy Conference (CAPC) has become a premier national policy outlook for the agri-food sector. While most previous conferences have focused largely on agriculture and agri-food policies, this conference will focusrf on the agri-environmental policies and programs and the connections between agriculture and the environment.
The Canadian Crops Convention is an annual, three day event hosted each March by the Canola Council of Canada and the Canada Grains Council. This event attracts people from across the grain, oilseed, pulse and special crop value chains to:
network, coordinate and improve dialogue;
discuss and gain insight into advancements and trends in agriculture; and
be inspired to continue a collaborative approach to advance the growth and profitability of Canadian crops.
During these three important days, you’ll have opportunities to make face-to-face connections with colleagues and customers from around the world in a business-focused environment.
Prairie Organics: Think Whole Farm 2020 will bring together the science and practice of organic farming. Conference delegates will learn about building soil fertility, managing weeds, the latest cultivation and seeding equipment along with other cross cutting issues such as building biodiversity and responding to a changing climate from leading researchers and producers. A 26,000 square foot trade show will be free and open to the public. The trade show will provide one-stop shopping for producers seeking organic certification services, input and equipment providers and associated environmental industries. Producers can build their markets by participating in one-on-one business meetings with buyers and networking sessions throughout the event. This year, we are introducing a new scientific poster session. This is an opportunity for scientists working on projects relevant to organic production in the Prairie/Great Plains region to present results to producers and researchers working in the region.
