Event Description

The Southwest Agricultural Conference is one of Ontario's premier agricultural educational conferences. The conference began 75 years ago as "Farmers Week" providing producers in Southwestern Ontario with educational information. As our target audience grew the conference evolved into the current two day format we know today as the Southwest Agricultural Conference (SWAC). The conference attracts expert agricultural industry speakers and researchers from across North America.  Internationally respected agricultural leaders address topics ranging from field crop management to farm profitability.  Leading local producers share their on-farm experience and expertise at the conference with producer panels on practical operation innovations.

The Southwest Agricultural Conference steering committee works closely with our partners Southwest Soil and Crop Improvement Associations, Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, and University of Guelph Ridgetown Campus to ensure the session topics are relevant to today's issues.
