    ROCK THE FARM CONFERENCE 2023

    AG Societies are encouraged to  sponsor a member of their community to attend the AYFR  Conference. The cost associated with sponsorship is eligible for funding  under leadership and development within the Ag Society Grant Program.

    In recent years, Young farmers and ranchers from across Alberta discussed crop production, pasture management, farm business management and  the importance of networking. There is always so much to learn.

    Managing your farm is a multi-faceted endeavour, there’s a lot of information to absorb.  When you’re sitting on the tractor it’s easy to forget how to structure your business. Stay tuned to our website for  more information on this year’s Convention topics
