The Agricultural Management Institute (AMI) Needs Your Input on Post Secondary Education and Farm Management. Click Here.

The Agricultural Management Institute (AMI) of Ontario has commissioned the Hemlock Group to conduct a survey of farm managers who have studied in agriculture at a post-secondary level in Ontario and elsewhere.  The objective of this project is to collect and analyse farm managers’ perceptions and attitudes regarding the value of their education in preparing them for an active farm management career.  The survey outcome will be shared with all Ontario and Canadian teaching institutions.  It is AMI’s hope that the information obtained in the study will be useful to institutions as they continually improve their program delivery to future farm managers.

 

Have Your Say Regarding Farm Business Management Education

Did you follow post-secondary education to prepare yourself for managing a farm? The Agricultural Management Institute would like to hear about your experience.  Investing 12-15 minutes of your time to complete this survey is an important investment for our industry. Your feedback will be shared with educational institutions to improve design and delivery of education for future farm business managers.

Global leaders gather to take action on sustainable livestock production

Livestock are seen as both a source of greenhouse gas emissions and a solution to climate change. To help bring balance, dialogue and understanding to an often-contentious issue, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations last fall hosted the first-ever Global Conference on Sustainable Livestock Transformation. 

Feeding the Future

The agri-food industry is the most important in the world – we all need to eat. Research and innovation have enabled tremendous change in the livestock sector, and we can expect that change to increase in rate.
