Event Description

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 farmers 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.

The training session will allow you to:

  • Gain knowledge, tools and resources to make better business decisions
  • Share best practices and lessons learned with other producers
  • Begin to create a comprehensive risk management plan tailored to your farm
