Tough decisions in tough times
Tough decisions about their businesses and their futures are facing many livestock farmers these days. But there may be some help on the horizon – a one day conference in London this week is designed to help them with those decisions.
The Ontario Pork Industry Council is hosting a day-long information meeting for beef, pork and veal producers at the convention centre in London. Topics include effects of the dollar, competitiveness, things to consider when transitioning your business and risk management. Among the key note speakers are Kevin Grier of the George Morris Centre, noted Kansas State University agribusiness professor Vincent Amanor-Boadu, and David Irvine, a renowned change management and leadership consultant.
The conference is sponsored by Farms.com, Ontario AgriBusiness Association, Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, Ontario Pork and Ontario Veal Association. Support is also provided by the Agricultural Adaptation Council through the CanAdvance program.
