CTEAM is designed specifically for producers and ranchers.

 

Through four modules, which are held in different cities across Canada, you will develop and implement your own strategic and operations plans for your farm.
 

Why Graduates find CTEAM so valuable

 
  • Content and Instruction - Outstanding instructors and mentors present cutting edge management concepts in a comfortable, yet intense, learning environment. Four modules are delivered over five days at select locations across Canada. They introduce you to a variety of management situations, experiences and conditions.
  • Learning is tailored to your situation - Program completion requires that you apply course material while developing and implementing strategic and operating plans for your farm.
  • Learn from each other - As you develop your plan and discuss issues in the various modules, you get instant and expert input and experience from your peer group as well as your instructors.
  • Opportunity to see outstanding operations - The opportunity to see various farm and business operations is one of the reasons we move the program across Canada. The tours provide you with access to innovative operations and outstanding agricultural managers from different areas of the country.
  • A life-long network - Participants from previous courses continue to correspond with each other, and enjoy the wise counsel of their classmates. You will benefit from the creation of a lasting network with other participants.
  • Excel at what you do - Graduates of this course have performed amazingly well. Since 2010, five graduates or graduate couples have been named Outstanding Young Farmer regionally; two were honoured nationally.
  • Ongoing professional development - Once you've completed CTEAM you are able to attend our alumni programs further extending your network. This course can also be credited toward a MBA at the University of Guelph.

Cattle Numbers Lowest In Decades

According to a Statistic Canada report, there were 11.1 million cattle and calves on farms, down more than 2 percent from the previous year and the lowest number since 1989. In Alberta, there were 4.7 million head on all beef cattle operations as of January 1st. That's down 85 thousand from a year ago. Cow/calf operations were up 18 thousand head year over year to around 2.6 million, while the drop came in feeder and stocker operations which were down over 157 thousand head to 956 thousand. Drought conditions and tight feed supplies, coupled with good prices, resulted in more breeding stock heading to market. Producers held 0.7 percent fewer feeder heifers and three percent fewer calves compared to a year ago. Average warm carcass weight increased 18 percent over the past 25 years, which helped offset the decline in beef production. The Stats-Can report also took a glance at other livestock on-farm. Canadian hog producers reported 13.8 million hogs on their farms on January 1st., dow

WHEN DO I TURN OUT MY COWS? MANAGING SPRING PASTURES DURING AND AFTER DROUGHT

Beef producers will soon be making grazing plans for turning their herds out to spring pastures. While drought planning should be a routine part of the development of short- and long-term grazing plans, many beef cattle herds have withstood successive years of drought. This has prompted producers to hone in on their management skills to make the best use of their pasture forage and carefully maintain carryover to prevent prolonged damage. The question of ‘when can I turn my cows out?’ is an important one, especially for those with dwindling hays stacks or for producers purchasing feed.   Dr. Edward Bork is a Professor of Rangeland Management in the faculty of Agricultural, Life, and Environmental Sciences at the University of Alberta. He says that, aside from spring rainfall, how your pastures looked when you brought cattle in last fall may be the best indicator of how they will perform in spring. “The better condition the pasture was in October, the faster it will recover,” Bork expl

Expansion of the emerald ash borer regulated area in Québec

As part of its commitment to protect Canada’s plant resource base from pests, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has put in place measures intended to protect Canada's economy by preventing the spread of emerald ash borer (EAB) to non-infested areas of Canada. The CFIA has updated its regulated areas for EAB to include additional Regional County Municipalities (RCM) in Québec. This expansion is due to detections of EAB in 2022 and 2023 in Québec.
