Event Details

Farm life can be unpredictable, even on the best days – weather, pests, market conditions, relationships, and more recently, COVID-19 can affect not only day-to-day farm management but the future of the operation altogether. But, with risk, also comes opportunity for those who are positioned to take calculated risks. This is why it’s important to plan for risk.

Farm Management Canada invites advisors to attend the Roots to Success Risk Management virtual training session to increase their ability to assess and address risks using a comprehensive approach to managing risk on the farm.

What to expect:

  • Learn about a comprehensive approach to assess, prioritize and plan for risks with your clients
  • Share best practices and lessons learned with other advisors
  • Gain access and learn how to use an online risk management platform
