Farms.com had the opportunity to video interview farmer and agri banker Clair Doan who is also one of the 2016 Nuffield Canada scholars. Clair's Nuffield research project will focus on how Canada’s supply managed sectors, particularly poultry farmers, can manage during times of uncertainty with increased political and global market pressures. As an advocate for our system, Clair seeks to gain a thorough understanding of production and marketing models abroad. His focus is to ensure the industry remains relevant and competitive while seeking market opportunities.
