Event Description

As the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic is still creating much uncertainty in the world, we have decided to protect our attendees, speakers and sponsors and host our event online. Through a variety of speakers, panels and discussion, we will feature all the same great content, virtually, that you can enjoy from anywhere - your home, office, field, boat, barn or greenhouse!

The Agricultural Excellence Conference (AgEx) is the only event in Canada dedicated exclusively to bringing farm management enthusiasts together to build their business acumen. This year's theme, Prosperity with Purpose, is about taking a proactive approach to farm business management - to build the confidence and underlying capacity to weather any storm and seize opportunities, positioning the farm for continued success.

  • We know what you're thinking "Oh no, not another online conference," but wait!
  • We'll be using a state-of-the-art platform to recreate the same great learning experience as our in-person Conference... and then some!
    You will be able to move around our virtual conference just like in-person; explore various speaker rooms, fill your swag bag with information, compete in mini-challenges for prizes, and network with others!
    We will have an exhibitor hall where you can learn more about organizations that see the value in business management, just as much as we do and chat with them, face-to-face!
  • We will have our National Resource Showcase - just like we do in person!

And the best part?

All main Conference sessions will be FREE!

Or, you can become a premium participant for only $150 and enjoy small-group follow-up sessions with our speakers.

Registration will open early September and we will announce our platform and all the sessions. To ensure attendees from across the country can join us live, we will be hosting learning sessions between 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. EST everyday, from December 8-10, 2020.

All of the Conference material will be available for a week after the live event.

Stay tuned for more information about AgEx 2020!

Ag Markets in Transition: Analyst

Agricultural markets are in transition, moving from a tight supply/strong demand scenario to one of adequate supply and reasonable demand, according to a US market analyst. Speaking as part of the USDA’s annual Agricultural Outlook Forum earlier this month, Consus Ag Consulting Partner Angie Setzer said the sharply weaker corn, soybean, and wheat prices being seen today are not a function of poor demand, despite the fact American exports have generally been slow. Instead, the primary reason for the lower prices is simply heavier global supplies. The fact of the matter is that world grain buyers are “awash” in offers, with no real shortages seen on the horizon, she said. “So, there’s nowhere out there right now where people are like, ‘oh crap, we might run out of wheat,’ or ‘oh no, we might run out of corn.’ No one feels like that right now, where we felt like that in a big way in 2022 for a short time. Demand, though good, is just not enough to outpace the adequate supply we’ve s

MANITOBA GOVERNMENT ANNOUNCES NEW APPOINTMENTS TO MANITOBA AGRICULTURAL SERVICES CORPORATION BOARD

The Manitoba government has appointed a new chair, vice-chair and directors to the board of Manitoba Agricultural Services Corporation (MASC), Agriculture Minister Ron Kostyshyn announced today. “Agriculture in Manitoba is growing and I am confident that the experience, knowledge and abilities of the individuals appointed to this newly formed board will play an important role in supporting agricultural stakeholders across our province,” said Kostyshyn.

Weed seed destructors rare on Canadian farms

About 30 weed seed destructors were used last fall on farms across Canada, says an Agriculture Canada scientist. That isn’t a lot, considering more than 2,000 new combines are sold annually in Canada and the country has some 50,000 grain farms. But farmer adoption of the destructors, which pulverize weed seeds before they exit the combine in chaff, is slowly gaining momentum. “The first mills that we’re aware of (in Canada) were adopted on farm in 2018. To go from none in 2017 to 30 in 2023, to me that shows (some) producers are seeing a benefit from it,” said Breanne Tidemann, an Agriculture Canada weed scientist in Alberta. “A lot of the mills that I’m aware of came on board from 2022 and later.” Weed seed destructors, sometimes called hammer mills or cage mills, are popular with Australian farmers. In 2022 more than 1,100 new combines were sold in Australia, according to the Tractor and Machinery Association of Australia. Of those new combines, 25 to 30 percent were equipped wi
